Managed to lightly kerb one of the alloys... Angry

I'm looking at some self repair kits  - are they any good? 

I was wondering whether the wheels are diamond cut? I hope not or it'll be hella expensive to fix... do those kits work with diamond cut alloys? 

Thanks guys and gals.

Yup there are diamond cut.

Hubby badly damaged one of mine, took it to a specialist who had the CNC latte that is needed. Fantastic repair but cost just under 130

Have you sent your reply from Costa Coffee Tiff, you could have gone for Mocha rather than Latte. However, the wheels are diamond cut as you say, so be prepared for a large bill, then fit some AlloyGaytors

Thanks y'all... 


The self help kits seem to get good reviews.. I might try it and if it doesn't work I'll have to pay the 100 anyway... 

annoying as it's only a 2" light scuff

I have one of these kits from an earlier car. You will find the final paint is just a silver colour that will look totally different to the highly polished remainder of the wheel. You may be better rubbing the scratches with various levels of glass paper to part remove the damage, but keeping the shine, then touching over with the clear gloss paint. This will look much better than putting a coat of silver paint on it.
