Title: alloys
Post by: onebdi on August 31, 2010, 05:25:38 PM
Hi, I have a set of  four, 14 inch alloys if anybody wants the. 2 tyres are reasonable, 2 are seriously worn to the wire! The alloys need a really good sanding and respray as they are flaking badly, but, no cracks. They are six spoke, if that helps.

hi.... do you have the longer wheel nuts? Or will you be re-using them?

lol. You weren't supposed to use them, unless you needed to. Obviously you didn't need to. My aftermarket alloys that I've got will accept the nuts just they are that deep (the holes) you can't get your socket/wheel brace on them sufficiently enough to tighten them. Bought some off ebay now all new and shiny like for 15 plus p&p

I love the way you "LOL" the idea of me driving 20 000 miles with the wheels in danger of falling of and killing me really badly!

If you managed 20K then they must have been fitted correctly..... otherwise you'd have been going down the road like a shopping trolley.

Had a good look at these wheels today and realised that one of them has a crack!!!!!!!!For how long? Who knows, but suddenly laxatives are no longer needed. Hate to think how many miles I drove on a cracked wheel!!! Naturally, have been scrapped.
