The only mashed up part is when i didnt rehook the bottom of the shoes and it ate part of the centre hub to no ill effect....

Now
Either im a lucky sod
The bolts are only just catching on 1 set of wheels
or magic trolls are afoot!


Didnt have any issues with the steel wheels and bolts last year on steelies tho?

2nd column, 2nd line -- 5 1/.2 J 35ET.

Can't see FIAT stamping the wrong ET on the wheels, even on a really bad day!

Re: Winter tyres

what i have to smile about is the fact the 1.2 8v has to have V Speed rated tyres....

When T is more then enough.... Weird how alloys make things more expensive...
