Evening all I have a buckled NSF rim on my CLK (thanks to a huge pothole). There is no visible damage, but two different tyre fitters have confirmed what the vibrations when driving over 60mph and under, even light, braking are telling me. So, new wheel time. MB have quoted £450 eek for a new one, but they won't fit it unless they also fit a new tyre. Reason being, the tyre may also be damaged and they won't take the risk. Now, I can see their point of view, but as there are several thousand miles left on the tyre, I'd rather not replace it if I can avoid it (especially as I'm going to add 4 wheel alignment to the list of jobs that need doing). Are their concerns warranted or are they just being, perhaps overly, cautious? Of course, they will just supply the wheel for me to arrange to have it fitted. For the avoidance of doubt, I don't see this as a money making exercise for them, they get my custom anyway (MB Warrington), and the profit on a £130 tyre must be minimal.
