good question steve, my alloys are just std on the valver, looking to get them changed in the near future.
anyone know of a place that will part exchange your old alloys for new? ive got some brand new 15inch torsons with brand new 195/40/15s tyres from my old escort... would be nice to know if i could exchange them.
Steve, my spare is still in the boot! untouched! they bought the four off me. If i ever got a flat id have to drive home with one odd wheel and it does mean i have to hide two sets of locking wheel nuts in the car.
ah. i hadnt actually thought about locking nuts before. i live in a fairly low crime area, but i suppose its one of those cheapish things youll really regret not buying. ive got phase 1 alloys at the moment which have a kind of locking centre cap, but im thinking of not carrying a spare if i get different wheels, not sure though.
205 tyres dont grip in snow last time it snowed quite bad i got my astra stuck lots of times, once goin uphill i had to stop couldnt get goin again just letting the clutch out with no revs it wud just sit there slowly spin,
had to turn round an go back down lol, was a bit embarassing
my old alloys are in the garage they will be going back on if i do any drag racing or track days, meant to swap em for this winter but not used me car much and neva got round to it
