Yesterday i gave the car a little treat, had it booked in metal magic in barnsley to have the original avus alloys refurbed (couldnt make my mind up what alloys to buy so thought why refurb the avus's) and new tyres fitted and WOW, i love them. The alloys were well and truely dead and i mean dead, they were scuffed, corroded, pieces missing off them etc, lol, i was a bit worried they wouldnt be able to do anything with them but boy i was wrong, they look amazing, the finish they have achieved is untrue. The colour i went for is a antrachite colour, i was going to go orange but decided against it last minute, thought it was a bit OTT, i cant wait to get pics up now, really goes well with the car. Got to say though big thanks to metal magic, top people and top service, highly recommened them. The next part, tyres. The old tyres i was running, were, michelin pilot sports, top quality tyre, offered amazing grip wet or dry but a bit pricey, around £140 a corner give or take, now i know you shouldnt skimp on tyres but noway i was paying over £500 for tyres when i'd just paid for the wheels been refurbed. So i bought some kumhos, exact same rating as the michelin's, reinforced wall, load rating etc, they were literally half the price. All i'm going to say is , their excellent, they grip just aswell as the michelins, gave them some bought in the wet last night and the car held onto the road like **** to a blanket, was really impressed, will definately be usieng them again in the future. And lastly, i finally solved the problem of the car shooting to the left, all the wheels were well and truely out of balance, didn't realise that wheels been unbalanced altered the handling of the car so much, had all the balancing redone and the car sits straight on the road even when you let go of the wheel, theres no pull at all, also i thought my steering rack was shot as there used to be play in the steering, now theres nothing, you cant move the whell without it affecting the direction were as before i could move it a good 5-10 degrees either way and nothing would happen. So all in all im a little bit happier with my car, ramble now other .
