  1. maybe this is a no brainer but I just needed a general confirmation opinion, it's not for a pug 205 but general car chat ford fiesta zetec s kerbed the alloy front from the inside questions:- 1. i) anyway I can bend the alloy back? heat up ? jack? or special equipment needed? ii)worth taking to a alloy wheel shop? 2. ok so the tyre seems ok ish except I have this pile of rubber on the inside seems to have come off one side just on the shoulder it's not really really bad can add more photos risk of blow out i guess now the wall is weakened a bit I didnt realise the tyre went flat and did maybe 1 mile then realised I guess its better to be safe than sorry so this is a no brainer &might be cheaper in the end just to buy new second hand alloy new tyre and start a fresh wiser I have got the manual tyre changer at home so at least I can fit the tyre myself tyre came off more easily than usual due to rim being bent. really nice tyre too yokohama. £90 buying new self + £50 alloy
