Ouch!
Is it a ferric grey one? if so there is one here for 300 from a dealer - better than 400.

Alternatively drop this guy an email - the quality of his refurbs are amazing.

Ahh man, thats such a shame. I hit a pot hole last year with a full car and recieved a complimentary flat spot on the passenger front.

I had the wheel heated and re pressed was like 40 inc vat or something.

Lepsons will recondition and straighten it. They just did one of my fronts and I was very happy with the result.

Had one of my OE 'Ferric Grey' MV3's refurbed after it was marked having a puncture repaired. Place I used managed to get the exact paint ordered in from a specialist, perfect colour match and better than OE finish IMO. They also do straightening. PM me if you need the contact details
