Has anybody had S1 rims straightend? Is it possible with the black rims? Only minor issues with them. Nothing too big.

Yes, I had my old black compomotives checked and one needed a tweak, it was not bad but not perfect. Was not a big deal. They were being painted, the repair involves heat so they will need to be refinished.

Yes, when I got my car one of the rears had a slight buckle on the inside rim (god knows how, crap tyre fitter maybe? :roll: ).
Was sorted without much effort by a local alloy wheel place for about £40. That was just to true it up and tyre off/on and balanced, didn't get it refinished as it’s not visible on the car :)

(Don't have any 'after' pics to hand, unfortunately)
