    Brand new car?
    I dont see how its your problem to run around doing all this, this is the dealerships issue.

    Sorry, I know, no help at all, but, just saying.

    most likely new to the OP. Regardless, make it the dealerships problem

    Who tampers with rims on warranty with a brand new car?

    Did you buy it that way or did you hit a curb on the test drive

    Let the dealer replace them under warranty.

    Hi

    I never had any luck to have a mag refurbished.... I have tried a couple of places in Cape Town.

    I am very petty, so usually end up buying new mags.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the reply's

    Back story:

    Bought the car in Jozi. Not brand new but from respectable dealer. Had alignment rechecked as balancing etc was off. They messed up the alignment which was corrected however in doing so discovered that wheels are buckled. They are covering all the costs, i just need to provide them with 1 or 2 quotes.

    *Thanks Francois will give them a shout

    These guys. Not the cheapest, but in your case it shouldn't be an issue. I have a guy across the road that repairs rims, but if I want a proper repair, Wheel service centre.

    Okay, that changes the perspective a bit, quite a bit then.

    Not a product warranty job then but a dealer warranty which is an important difference.

    As a matter of fact, I was forced twice to refurb some German Mags (Borbet that was).
    If done properly, the they can be as good as new.

    I witnessed one process where the rim was mounted on a lathe and spun at about 500 rpm, heated with a gas blow torch until it became like jelly, then the guy was using 2 wooden sticks to form the initial shape whilst spinning and cooling down. Balancing with the tyre on was no issue later.

    This was a repair after I was forced to drive the car with a flat tyre (2nd blow-out in the same night) for 10 kms on the rim in the middle of the Karoo at night.
    This was done in Kimberley after being driven back from Strydenburg to get new tyres.

    The rims are still mounted on that E34 BMW
