    i only use one tyre centre and the owner only lets one lad loose on my wheels.. when he did mrs gsi's irmscher signas ( which were brand new in their boxes) he actually took even more care than usual as i was stood about 12" off his shoulder the whole time....

    there are plenty of dodgy tyre fitters out there, when you find a good one hang on to him..

    fitted four tyres to mine, had an hours lunchbreak to do it.

    was rushing really, i clamped the first wheel from the inside out rather than the outside in and whilst removing the tyre, the wheel came off the machine and scratched it three quarters round.

    Its got to be refurbed

    That's the problem these day's, half of the fitters don't give a *hit. I tell the fitter before they even start to go carefull with the alloy's or else....

    When ever i take my car to a garage to have any work done i put my old alloy's on and then it give's me a chance to clean the 19's properly.

    Alot of garages dont like to change tyres on 19's due to the fact there's no room for any error...

    Ask Roy2593 i had a spare 19" vxr wheel a month odd ago and No one wanted to put a tyre on it for him..!!!! He lives up near Anglesea think he went to pretty much all garages even Vaux themselves would only do it at his risk..!!!!

    Bit of a joke really bought time they sorted a new machine out to resolve this prob as so many people now runnning 18+ rims
