    Default SRi Wheels .... HEEELP!

    Hey guys.
    Im in a bit of a situation.... About 9 months ago or so I walked out to my Veccy to find a nice flat tire...first thoughts were that it had been a puncture or been slashed or something...When I took my wheel into a garage for the tire to be replaced, it turned out that there was nothing wrong with the tire at all, no puncture or anything, that it just needed re-seating on the rim, he said that it was very rare for this to happen but when the tire was fitted in the first place, a bit of grit or something could of prevented the tire from sitting soundly on the rim, so after the re-seating, he said if it happens again, then it may well be a problem with the rim...So here i am now having to pump my tire up every week because the problem has come back to kick me in the ass...Just wonderd if anyone has had the same problem and where i can get hold of A wheel, just one, no need for me to replace all 4, having trouble finding the wheels on the net, let alone finding somewhere that will sell me just 1! Please help as my tire is loosing air as we speak!! Cheers guys...

    Yeah,your main dealer should be able to get one - just the rim though no tyre

    All they need is a code on the inside of the wheel to get the right one....

    120 quid was a rough guess cause i bought a replacement about 18 months ago and that was £110 so they're bound to have gone up a little...

    what you need is the tyre centre to put some 'beadseal' on the rim before mounting the tyre.. if it's a bead problem that'll cure it..

    Had a problem with my car once, you may of had this checked, but maybe not. Was the valve on mine.

    Put some soapy water or the like on end of valve, see if there are any bubbles
