    Was looking to (whilst Fiancée was away) give my wheels a good clean and also apply a sealant. Was going to use Poorboys but couldn't find it in the shops (a detailing company 'Polished Bliss' near Aberdeen has it but is closed at weekends). Ended up buying Rim Wax for £17.50 at...

    Slow leak round wheel rim

    Hi Since having a couple of new tyres fitted, one appears to have a very slow leak round the rim (6 year old alloy ... but visually not in too bad nick). The folks that fitted the tyre have re-seated it twice now and it still looses a few pounds pressure over a couple of weeks. They now say...

  10. Tire size on a 16inch evo rim

    I currently have 205/45/16 but would like to have a less wide tire. I don't like how the wide tire makes the car feel unstable on bad Belgian highways. Breaking in wet will probably also improve with narrower tires. There is also a small price difference per tire in favor of the narrow ones...

    After mullering my wheel I'm thinking about getting some tyres with rim protectors and I just wondered how well they do actually protect the wheel? Has anyone got any pics of an 18 with one of these tyres one? Thanks :)
  14. 175/50/16 tyres on a 7.5j rim

    Is this wise? I use my car daily, probably about 15k a year unfortunately :(. Am currently looking at new tyres, was planning on keeping the 205/40's on the back and swapping the fronts from 195/45 to 195/40. But I have just seen a set of 175/50's up for sale and thought it may be worth changing...

  16. Rim Sizes - Euro Style

    I read some of you use 7.5J on the front and 9J on the back - would 9J all round be ok? What sort of problems would there be if I ran 9J all over? Some problems with front alignment - is this easy for a self fix? Any info appreciated! :) edit:They're on Toyo Proxes T1-S tyres with a profile...
