I agree with Jo - go and buy some alloys! Woolaston MINI have an offer - any wheels and tyre set you like for £1200 including fitting. Alternatively, you could get 15s which are good, as they are less likely to be kerbed, for less, or try ebay.

Look nice and only covered 19,000 miles! Jo will approve too.:p

They come with tyres too!

Another set (same design)

Dont get me involved :eek:

However I would agree that even the most basic 15" alloys look heaps better than dinner plat...err I mean, wheel trims :cool: :D

(though if you are serious about keeping your trims, im not sure how you can fix them!)

5s there anyone local to you where you can get them repaired/touched up? I bumped my Clio (long story) and made a bit of a mess of the driver's front alloy (dented, chipped etc). My dad took it to a mate of his and it came back looking like new.

Might be cheaper than swapping them if you look into it.

They aren't alloys - they are wheel trims - the plastic things.:rolleyes:
