    Default Hi from Toe-side

    Hi every one I’m Angus live in Northumberland near to the Scottish Borders.
    I run a Vectra ‘C’ 150 SRi Estate I have had for just over 3 years. It came with VXR 19’s. They look great but can be a bit of a pain for tyres and kerbing. Her indoors doesn’t like them.
    Previously I had a Vectra ‘B’ 2.2 SRi Diesel estate for around 6 Years . So have had Vectra’s for some time. Sad but true.
    This is a great site with loads of really helpful info and support. The miles are piling up on the present Vectra so starting to spend more time ‘tinkering’. Hopefully as I carry out some tasks I will be able to feed back to the site as others have. Recently been diagnosing a faulty EGR and I am about to change the cam belt and ancillaries with the help of some of the excellent threads on the site.
    Other interests:
    VW T5 bus project
    Son’s Corsa 1.0 (Just changed the cam chain and sprockets bit of a job just to get to the chain and sprockets!)
    Sports boats and wakeboarding.

    Thanks Soulman. Are they veredestein wintrac extremes?
    I have a set of old alloy 17's with snowies (cheapo brand) that I put on when it gets cold up these parts. I manage to get around ok with those on. The Accelera's that I have (again Cheapo's) dont go to well in the snow!

    Ooops........No my fault showing my lack of street cred there!
    Yes its the kerbing that gets me also. Love the lack of tyre movement me.
    Her in door calls it the 'tethered terrier' the way it scrabbles for grip sometimes in the wet!
