United-Kingdom Buckled JCW wheel

Hi, the dealer informed me today that I have buckled a wheel after only two wheels of ownership. Has anyone else had any issues with the JCW wheels my car is a 2010 year model.
There is a slight vibration through the steering wheel and pedals but I didn't think anything of it, the car was in the garage today for another issue and this was found.
The buckled wheel is at the front, do you think that swapped wheels from front to back will remove this vibration?

Cheers
L

Hi ya

The vibration will move with the wheel, you have a few choices if it's not to bad you may be able to get it repaired.
Or buy a second hand one from ebay, mini forum or new from mini

Personally I don't like repairing wheels.

Thanks for the reply. Going to move it to the back as the rear pair of tyres are slightly better than the fronts anyway. Then I will enquire about a repair and go from there.
