    Default Bad News!!! :(

    On my way to work yesterday morning 0630 am driving at a slow pace approaching my turning when i hit a patch of ice causing the beloved Vec to slide and send me over the Kerb turns out 4 other people in work did the exact same thing. End result i ended up with a Egg in both nearside tires luckily enough the wheels didt even have a mark on them







    Ended up costing me 75 quid for two tyers and wheel balancing, Not bad aye just before christmas thats all i need.

    Yikes! At least you didn't smack the kerb with the wheel, - that could've been new wheel(s) and suspension damage. Did the same in my last Astra - crawling along on an icy estate road and still the car slid on one corner and the wheel smacked the kerb - new wheel and a few suspension components!

    They do grit it. Any one from Liverpool will know it, Its Ormskirk road the road that passes Aintree race course. I was gutted at the time but oh well it happens i suppose.

    Did you get the tracking checked when they fitted the tyres. If not you need to keep an eye on the wear or the car will eat your new tyres.
