Just hit an object on the A303, no idea what it was but it was harder than my front nearside wheel. The tyre pressure loss warning came on, so pulled over and watched the tyre go flat, then phoned Nissan recovery who were excellent.

The wheel is badly scraped, don't fancy having it repaired, so was wondering if the only place to buy another (new style 10 spoke) is the NHPC? Ouch lol.

If anyone knows for a front 10 spoke wheel, or any other ideas where I could get one that would be greatly appreciated :)

Another snag is that the recovery guy damaged the front splitter while loading the car on to the flatbed, I felt a bit sorry for him because he was an experienced guy, just made a mistake this time. But I'll have to notify the recovery people tomorrow and presumably their insurance will pay for a new splitter.

If it's an MY09/10 alloy I think I've got one laying about.
But sounds like you need an MY11+.

Thanks for the offer Richard but yes it's a MY11 wheel, I think yours would make a great hose reel tho.. :)

Jonison, I haven't seen it in the day light yet, but it didn't look pretty with a torch last night, and luckily r7jay had a MY11 wheel, thanks Jay.

Steve, yeah I guess it may have been an unexploded bomb, good job I've got some RE070's being fitted on Friday :)


Nissan have quoted me £1485 for a new front splitter, apparently it's 2 hours labour to fit. Just waiting to hear back from the recovery people now after they get up off the floor :)
