    yeah they can be repaired , its sort of pressure pulling .even after repair some bowling will be there . Better buy a new one . Post your requirement on QUICKR.COM , u may get a deal . Or repair for time being than change to new one . I dont think Fiat will replace the alloy . It amazes me how alloy bent , it should break instead , as alloys are brittle .

    Thank you all for the quick response. I know that it will be replaced under warrenty but just didnt want to claim unless its absolute necessisity. I will try Xenex today as suggested by naveen and also try some shops as suggeseted by paddleshifter.
    But if some one knows any specific contact, please do share.
    Thank you.

    Are GP alloys available that easily in Hyderabad?
  10. @gopscreative
    no!
    they are hard to find!
    they were there the last time i went around for getting tyres changed on my other car 1 week ago
    and OE alloys not being so common here, they might still be there
    cant confirm though!
