GT 18inch Wheel damage

Went to get the Sunday papers lack of concentration and cliped the edge of the road which is a soft verge all but the bit I found taken a nasy chunk out of the wheel rim and punctured the wall of the tyre. Obviously need a new tyre and possibly wheel. The nead is exposed where the chnk is missing. Where can I get a replacement wheel ASAP since now of the road. Typically done it on a Sunday when the Alfa Delaers are closed. Any idea on cost?

Re: GT 18inch Wheel damage

alfa dealer is probably quickest, but expensive for a genuine wheel. in australia, around AUS$1500 a piece from memory, so probably around UK$400~500.

otherwise, you could order a copy. do a 'search' in the forums about this for places to try.

Clipped a Kerb with mine as well, took a chunk out of the rim, alfa dealer quoted me £260 for a new rim, not sure if that included vat or not !

Managed to get a new rim with tyre from Ned at Autolusso, might be worth giving him a try, he also got my damaged rim repaired, although yours sounds like it may be beyond repair.

Not sure how bad the damage is but i had my 18" spoked GT wheel repaired from kerb rash usually about £80 per wheel depending on how bad it is id give someone like chipsaway a call and get a free quote before id buy a new wheel

This company might be worth a try too

GTA Italian Wheels Limited | Alfa Romeo Style Alloy Wheels, Alfa Romeo Alloys, wheels/tyres for Alfa Romeo cars

Don't know what they are like someone else on the forum may have used them though.
