Hit a curb!
I ended up being pushed off a roundabout by a lorry. The car hit a curb on the driver side and burst both tyres on that side and dented the rim of the alloy on the front wheel, the back alloy is just slightly buckled.
Anyway, alloys in getting fixed and refurbed and have two tyres on hold but I left the car in to the garage yesterday to get it looked at. They said all is fine, i just knocked the alignment out on the front and back (to be expected) but thats it really. This is good news but I think something else might be wrong. Firstly, when driving it it sounds like the wheel is going around quite rough, almost like a bearing problem... and second, the offset on the passenger side which is correct has the gap between the alloy spokes and the brembo calliper being very tight like 1/2mm. But on the driver side (where the impact was) this gap is now 5/6mm. And thirdly, when I jacked the car up and spun the front wheel, the brake disk is rubbing off the pads once every rotation. Does this mean its buckled??
I wasnt too fond of having the space saver on the front so took the back passenger side alloy off and put it on the front driver side so I have two spares on the back atm.
But surely that shouldnt be?? Has anyone else done this or have any idea what it would be?
Hope someone can help.
