I would highly recommend you get it done. It is not worth the risk.

It'll cost me close to $1000 to get done here so if it's not necessary would prefer not to obviously!
@Sean18337: many thanks for your input also! The dealership can't do it, but a mobile supplier can fit before I collect - would prefer to do that if I get it done rather than risk chipping on way to fitter. Do you mind me asking if you have 20s or 19s though?
