Agree a new set of alloys need to be measured from stock as well as an equivalent used car of the same age from the 'used' car lot.
I was thinking the same.

It still makes me laugh that they measure the runout on a CRACKED alloy (which, let's face it, is no longer going to be "round" because it's got cracks in it, FFS!) and conclude that because the runout is too high, the cracks must be caused by damage!
