Cinquecento Turbo Cinqi Update

Introduction

Ok so i know i said the wheels would just get a silver refurb, but when i got to the refurb place and saw display wheels decided cant be that bland and boring.... ;)

I know they wont be everyones cup of tea but to me its the perfect compromise between the ML's and the smoors :slayer: :D :D :D

Ooops forgot to say, its a weird colour, kind of a mix of anthracite and gunmetal grey, sometimes looks anthracite (like above) but other times looks gunmetal

omg! i never noticed that :eek: just made me run out and check and it seems to be bulging :( like you can see and a v slight tiny bulge bit further round, only that one wheel though :confused:

Must've been caused by refurb place because was fine when went in on the smoor, have i got a leg to stand on do you reckon? :( as the tyres wernt brand new when they fitted them (ok they were practically, 2 tyres driven 2 metres and others about 20 miles!) and is it ok to run on it as is for short while (aka replace asap) or a replace now job? :(

Cost me about £240 after vat and tyre fitting etc (although need to moan at them for one of the tyres as custard pointed out :( )

Hopefully should easily make the money back from selling the smoors to pay for refurb and a bit of a wedge left over with any luck :D (y)

So general verdict is a good call made then? (y) :D
