Can anyone help me, I have kerbed my model 3 performance grey alloy fairly badly and need it repaired. I live in Glasgow (Scotland). Any recommendations or thoughts would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

As well as my original recommendation for Wheel Wizards in Hamilton, please see this post for a mobile solution (m-techalloyrepairsscotland.co.uk) that covers Glasgow:

Have you ever kerbed your Aero wheels?

I have the 18" wheels, colour match was perfect, I'm sure they'll be able to match the silver performance wheels too.

For reasons that remained unexplained no one knows what the actual paint code is for Tesla alloys (Performance & Aero at least). Various people have come up with approximations of it, but the actual paint code is classified it appears.

I managed to finally get time and get my allow wheel repaired from The Wheel Specialist in Cumbernauld. Have a look at the before and after picture, they have done a great Job.

Looks nice. Were they able to blend the rim edge or did they need to repaint the complete face of the wheel?
