    Post My chrome wheel problem

    This is the reason why my new drivers side front tyre has been going own a lot this week, after the new tyre was fitted;





    Top Gear (Basingstoke) said it shouldn`t be a problem to replace it but I`ve found out that BK do not make these in chrome anymore.

    I`m now looking at a set of deep dish 19`s to put on in the winter and use the new custom chromes for summer and show use. Yes I know, it`s taken me a year to decide to do it this way. It`s just a pain that I have to wait to get a replacement as the car`s on the ramps at my local ETB Tyre centre.

    Still, this doesn`t help me to get a replacement in the mean time.


    Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    These will be oing on Ebay very soon, had enough now.

    Don`t think I was given a new receipt when I had the 2 drivers side wheels replaced back in January this year so that could be my first problem. Cannot find it anywhere.

    Just want a replacement to get the car off the ramps and on the road again. Then I will go and have a look at some different designs before making the purchase.

    Paid just over a grand for the 18`s, 19`s I`m looking at are averaging out at about £1,300.
