    Unhappy MOT Fail. Cracked VXR Wheel

    Hi guys,

    Well today was the MOT and it passed everything no problem except when it was up on the ramps the mechanic noticed a crack in the nearside front VXR wheel. Absolutely gutted... Only bought these about a month ago second hand.

    I've got 10 days to track down a wheel and get it back to the garage for re-test. So if you do know anyone with one I have posted a wanted advert in the trading section.

    Cheers
    Dave/Mishima

    Sorry to hear that mate. If you've had the wheels a month could you not report the problem to paypal and say that there's a defect in the wheels? Thats if you paid through paypal.

    Nice idea, just called them and even though I stated it was a legal wheel the spare he said it would fail as its not the same dimensions as the VXR wheels. Current law states they have to be same size. It's one of those skinny 60 mile 'get you home' wheels. Shame it didn't work.

    Thanks mate, me too. I bought them off a member on here. This could just have been my fault though, they certainly weren't cracked when I bought them. I've not done anything crazy when driving - infact with the new upgrade to 19" I've been driving more careful, avoiding pot holes.

    I have a few possibles. Just going to see which is cheapest. The annoying thing is I can't drive the Vectra until this is sorted, and I also need to get this back to the MOT centre within 10 days. Nothing is ever easy!!

    Do you have your old wheels? As long as the two front wheels are the same size it'll pass
