    Icon8 180 Wheels

    Well, I've been trying my best to not scuff the wheels but it's happened and I did it well

    Advertisement


    About 6" along the rim and a little bit on one of the spokes. I was in a rush, found a park and befor I knew it - scraaaaaaaaaaap!

    Bugger!

    It's only cosmetic but is it easily fixed or should I trade in my twin spare cans and place this wheel perminantly in the boot - so to speak?

    Is it possible to polish out the scuffs or do I bite my tongue and get a new wheel?

    Thanks Guys

    I'm still definitely interested in 4, but I'm not in any great rush. Whenever you manage to get the right deal, Jester, I'm in

    Oh, and Nassty, a few of us 180 wheel people have had their rims repaired for just this sort of thing, so it appears to be quite easy, and around $100 as Jester said. As you are in Melbourne, I can't recommend anyone to you though, sorry.
    Regards,

    I have scraped all 4 of my wheels at least once! I was never bad in the 306. I've found that part of it is due to the fact that the Pirellis don't widen out from the wheels (like most tyres do), but in fact run narrower than the wheel rim. This means the alloy is the first to hit anything. I'm not getting mine fixed until I replace the tyres as I think that it's quite likely to happen again.

    I kerbed one of the wheels on my 138 quite badly. I took it to a place in Adelaide called Extensive Wheel Services, They re-welded in the material that was missing, re-rounded the wheel and also re-painted it too. I think all up it cost me $180 or thereabouts.

    If you want to get it done look up places in the Yellowpages and make sure you shop around as the other quote I had was something like $250.

    Thanks Guys

    Knew it was going to be difficult to keep the rims shiny but as you Guys have stated, it's an easy FiretrUCK up and good to know that I'm not the only unfortunate bloke to have done it. It's good enough reason to get tyres with rubber rims on them to protect the wheels from kerbing.

    I'll look into getting them prepared but Jester_fu if you can get a great deal to bulk purchase I would be interested. $680 is a joke for a one piece wheel.

    Thanks again - I feel better now!

    Scott, I believe Industrie was referring to flange lip on the tyre... to protect the rim. But my recollection of the rim is that it flares out, so although you can protect the outside of the rim, you can't protect the spokes...

Everyone else i've copntacted has cheaper wheels, but they are all 2-3kg's each heavier than the stock rims. Me thinks those stock rims are pretty sweet, after looking around...
    Point taken - but I've ordered 18x8 and 18x10 ROH wheels for my cobra replica that are three piece and will cost the same as a one piece cast peugeot wheel. Sure the centres are the same but they have to machine it for the hubs and then adjust the offset on the rims which equals more labour. Cast one piece wheels require much less labour etc etc

    Thats's why you can get, although crap, AM wheels for about $250 each. Considering they're crap that's probably too much too!

    I'm actually talking about the sidewall of the tyre. Look at the sidewall on the 180 & then look at other low profile, and also regular, tyres. You'll see what I mean.

    The OZ Australia website is http://www.ozaustralia.com.au/ (funnily enough). I actually contacted OZ Australia a while ago when I first started looking at the Superturismo WRC rims, asking about Sydney distributors. They told me that the guys to contact are Steve or Robbie at Bob Jane Drummoyne on (02) 9819 7422. Never actually got around to calling them myself, so I can't vouch for the accuracy of that information.

    Not sure if any of you have looked at Team Dynamic wheels, but I believe they're of a high quality also. The distributor for that, as well as Kumho is a guy called John Mills. He owns an ST170 and would be happy to help out, I'm sure.

    I'd be interested in getting another rim as a spare.

    I got a spacer from the dealer when I bought my 180, don't keep it in the car unless I'm going out of town. This is all well and good, but it'd be good to have the real thing to put on while I'm getting the scuff marks on mine repaired.

    I don't believe that spacer's are rated for much of a distance and I've seen one of the guys at work wait over a month for his rims to be repaired. The spacer is also a different size than the rims too, so it's another reason that it's not good for your car for a long period of time.

    Jester, how many do you have to order for the price to drop below $680? The shipping costs from you to me in Melbourne are also a consideration I guess. Will have to do some research into that too!

    Thanks
    Nick
