    Does anybody know of anyone who can redo my split rims, they are original aero 2, and both of the front two alloys are cracked. I don't really wannt to get them weldEd as they are spilts, but I can find anyone who can source the inner rim and rebuild them.

    Any ideas?

    They can be repaired permanently and I think Akash has had this patricular job done a few times with great success.

    If he doesnt pop up and reply to this post it might be worth sending him a PM to see who he uses.

    Alloy Weldcraft in High Wycombe are pretty good with splits.
