Does anybody know if you can repair alloys as i will keep the one there taking off for spare as there a good chance i'll need it after reading the comments on here. also has anyone claimed against the council responsible and how do you go about doing it any help would be grateful.

And you can try and claim but good luck, they'll a lot of the time tell you to prove it, and then they'll probably fill the hole in like it never existed. pests the lot of them.
Ford are asking me to bring mine in to be inspected, I've got in contact with Auto Express again and I'm looking to see if the wheels can be professionally tested, just not sure where to begin >.<

Pests sounds more amusing, getting into bad habbits saying that left right and centre >.< apologies.
Comes to it now, 4 wheels need replacing, BADLY. So here's the story;
Took my car to Ford today and asked for all 4 wheels to be checked, n/s and o/s front buckled and the rears were apparantly fine (I also have white sidelights, headlights and reversing lights SHOCK HORROR), so I was like fine, I'll go see my dad at work. We then decide to inspect ourselves and my god the state... the front o/s has 5 buckles on the inside of the wheel and 3 on the outside of the wheel, and as a data point we check the n/s, which is worse... then I'm like meh it's jacked up let's check the rears anyway as I span it free in the air whilst on a jack and it seemed a bit off, and behold! The back n/s is buckled to hell, so I'm like right check the o/s, as is that one too. So, Ford managed to tell me my lights are white, but don't actually check the rear wheels for what they were meant too? Nice.
So they're honestly trying to say there isn't an issue with the wheels? The car has covered less than 25K, and has had 2 front tyres 6 months in, and now needs 4 wheels that have at least 3 buckles per wheel, with around 8 or 9 being the most on each front. Sorry, but this is absolute pig muck, you can't tell me probably 20 buckles car-wide isn't an issue, they're unfit for purpose. I'm looking at taking evidence of these wheels and my old ones (that I have kept for evidence purposes) and really going to push for this now. It's despicable how they're treating customers.

Lol Stoney changing my post
Apologies for that mate but we're having a naughty word purge, even only mildly cheeky words are no longer permitted.
So that's half my posts being edited as i type
