Where did u get your tyres/wheels from mate??


Tyres from camskill and i bought the wheels brand new from ford (one of dealers on ebay) :ph34r:

cost me a fortune but im saving my summer tyres, they will last me 2 winters (3 months each year) and i should still be able to sell them on when i get rid of the car... so IMO i haven't lost anything..just an investment

They are really good though, extra rubber has made for a nice ride. only had them out on frosty and icy roads, no snow yet but im very impressed. probably get winter tyres on my next car

ive got them on credit for 12 months, costing me about 30 a month, was better than paying it out in one go..

wheels and nuts were best part of £200 though :ph34r:

i was going to buy used ones, couldn't be bothered with the hassle.. one company was wanting about £150 for the 4 wheels new (not ford) so i just went for the ford ones. ford wanted £3 each for wheel nuts though, got these for £15 plus delivery from a 2007 car. Again i could have probably got these for alot less if i could be bothered going to a breakers

you will get the tyres cheaper in the summer..they go up a bit for winter..

Got a mid-range Karcher with an attachment from Poorboys and the I4D snowfoam, seems to work pretty decent.

Considering a citrus pre-wash foam now I think.....

I have been adding a drop of meguiars gold class shampoo to my snow foam, much better results IMO and im using a stronger mix for thicker foam. seems to lift the dirt really well, great for the winter

to begin with i was using a 10% mix, which on my bottle is just under an inch. now im using an inch or just over of snow foam with a squirt of shampoo. dont know if its right or not but i get good results and most importantly i still have wax left on the car lol
