    Default Thats It! I'm finished with snowflakes.

    Finally had enough of my 19" snowflakes. I absolutley love the look of them, but the ride is terrible. For 3 years now, i have put up with it. I've had about 6-7 punctures in the last 12 months, 4 of them in the last month.

    So It's bye bye Snowies............Hello Irmscher Evo Stars.

    I just hope it makes a big difference to the ride quality

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    I sold my 19's because of the ride on them on our roads these days,my 18's don't seem much better,but that could be the runflat tyres causing that hard feeling still

    I needed tyres and budgets were dear enough and i bought 2 goodyear run flats with 7mm of tread for about £150 delivered or something and liked the idea of a brand name tyre for budget money
    But even on elite springs they are a bit hard for me really,i prefer my 17's ride but don't like the wheels
