    E10 to be the new standard petrol?

    Our car is in for service and we have been advised by video that both front rims are slightly buckled. Need to find out if repairing them is a) possible and b) if it's covered by our wheel insurance. Not happy Bob, not happy! :( Any recommendations for alloy straightening firms near Chester?
