Buckled alloy wheel repair prices PLEASE!

So, my OH was driving in the snow and apparently hit a curb quite hard. I would say the wheel is buckled as it is pulling to the left. It's driveable cus we managed to get it home, but anyone had one repaired recently? I know it depends on the car etc... but some rough prices on here would be wonderful.
Cheers

More likely to be suspension / arm damage. If it were buckled it would probably leak imo.
#2
If he's kerbed it, it's going to need the whole axle looking at.

I wouldn't. Just go to a garage you can trust and let them look at it - usually no obligation. If you aren't sure take it to another. Just ask for an idea of the damage and the cost to fix it. Then you can make your mind up. Might just be a wheel, might be something seriously dangerous...

No problem. I hope it's just the wheel, my mum wrote her car off after kerbing it. Completely knackered the rear axle and caused all sorts of damage. Her brother is a mechanic so he looked at it, but if she'd carried on driving it something serious might have happened. Doesn't bear thinking about really. Drive safe!

What car and front or back?

Sorry about the wheel, I was in a similar situation when my car started sliding across the ice, guess applying the brake made matters worse, but I was lucky to just have kerbed my alloy, although it was quite a deep scuff as I hit approx 10mph, had it refurbed this morning, was £45 :)

Probably just the tracking knocked out. Does it fell like the wheel is wobbling or just pulling? Even if the wishbone is slightly bent it's a cheap fix:thumbsup:

Get the tracking checked then. Should be able to get that checked free and get them to have a look at the rest when it's on the ramp to make sure.
