    If you are stripping the wheels by chemicals or blasting quids in!

    if its by hand then maybe not.

    i work at aldermaston coaches. i got a tyre fitting machine not the best but does the job, saves paying for them to be changed.

    i didn't see you, i was on the way back from southampton.

    not sure on the mileage but the housing does look very clean and shows little sign of wear/cracks.

    can't wait to get it fitted and get off to r-tech rathen then the massive mistake i made last time and getting it mapped locally, i won't say who as a few people took offence last time i did
