    Default Bad day work

    Doing some work on the car today had to take the front wheel off and found that there's a crack in the inside rim of the 19" snowflake. Had a look on the web for a new one nearly £300 for one so a mite try the wheel specialist to see if i can get it repair. Why does vauxhall report a problem to speedline wheels because there must be a problem with there casting of these wheels my brother's rangerover wheels don't crack and they are 20"

    Due to low profile tyres they are really vulnerable if you dont run them on the right pressure. Coupled with the state of the roads its not good.

    Well I had on the the car since it was new I do feel like there's a problem with speedline with there casting. You don't hear many of the big sports car company's who got 19" and bigger wheels on there cars. I do know that BMW had trouble with there wheels cracking
