I'm so sorry!!

I know this is everywhere and everyone wants one however I'm super desperate!! I need a Sporting alloy any condition with or without tyre.

I had a fight with a curb and now my front nearside alloy is completely buckled I need one super urgent and was wondering whether anyone could sell me one or point me in the right direction.

Thank you so much!!

Just to clarify

Re: I'm so sorry!!

as dave says the snow trac are very good (im running them at the moment in 175 width



Or buy a steel rim and tyre

For the price they are on ebay i would buy new!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FIAT-GRAND...item3f215818ce

http://www.shop4parts.co.uk/?name=st...=2817&sku=7108

fitted with a cheap 175-65-r15 84T Tyre

eg http://www.mytyres.co.uk/cgi-bin/rsh...ort=P&dsco=110

and use it as a spare and replace the crappy fix and go with it and a jack and brace off the fleabay when you can

(if you look in your hand book that is the fiat prescribed spare wheel for your car)

Re: I'm so sorry!!

if it's super desperate just get your backside down to any scrappy and get any rim (correct size obviously) with a 4 stud fitment. It'll do.

you have to take care that you dont invalidate your insurance fitting a tyre of a different size or rim to those prescribed by the manufacturer is risky in that respect

which a spare tyre / wheel as i listed above will be fine as its in the owners handbook
