    Thank you stretch fit tyres, on the plus side no damage to the tyre.

    Haha! My nearest misses have come from summer days and admiring the scenery.

    And I feel your pain on that wheel, ouch indeed! What width tyres and wheels are you running, that seems a decent amount of stretch.

    If only they were real split rims. :(

    The rims are pretty soft so I'll fettle it and dress it up with a rubber mallet and a block of wood for now. On the plus side they are cheap so I'll most probably end up getting a replacement wheel.

    I hit the inside of a roundabout which had a sandstone block sticking out of it.
    I will be changing the wheels but only when funds allow so it could be a while yet.

    I know i keep seeing them and thinking i might make you a very cheeky offer.... but i don't fancy 19's if i'm honest the price of tyres puts me off as i do quite high milage

    Well just for the record Greeny's wheels are also 19", plus if your not fussed about tyre brands you can get them for peanuts on fleabay.

    Mine is fine, it's just a little jiggly over rough B roads.

    If I'm completely honest with you, and I'm not just saying this, I couldn't tell any difference when putting the 19's on after having 18" S4 Avus. That was on the standard sport suspension, then after fitting the KW coilovers it still didn't seem to make any difference! Put it this way, my wife used to HATE my old cars such as my civic type r, scooby, clio sport 197 etc that had big wheels (well, 17's and 18's on the scooby) cos she always used to complain about the harsh ride, but she never noticed the difference when I fitted the 19's and the coilovers over the 18's and standard suspension, and still to this day hasn't mentioned a harsh ride at all.
