Re: New alloys

Hi, :agree: with the above. Don't bother messing about with adapters. I assume you've just bought these wheels second hand, right? If you don't know what cars they will fit, you can find out by measuring the distance between opposite stud holes. Some research on the internet will tell you what cars ...

Re: Front Shocks

Hi, It might be worth checking that the correct struts are still on the car. The 2.8 struts differ from the 4 cyl struts. The way to tell them apart is that the 2.8s have a short thread with a nut on them at the very bottom, just above the balljoint. I think I'm right in saying that the original Bil...

Hi,
I must be getting old. I just don't get the stretched tyre thing.

Re: There's some evil scum out there.

Hi,
Sorry to hear about that, what a nightmare.
The woman probably spent the money and forgot or put it somewhere else instead, and immediately accused you because she was in a panic.
Perhaps the woman is so loaded because she pulls this scam everytime someone comes to her house. ;)

I thought they'd been quiet for a while. Obviously relocated to Nigeria to plan this. Disgraceful!
Their activities must be funded by royalty payments, so we should boycott their songs!

Hi,
Great, it will be nice to see another person there. 8-) Shame the V8 won't be coming though, I think we'd all like to see (and hear) it! :)

Hi,
When I goggled these to see what they were, one site I went to says :
"you need to have other quality styling mods to avoid it looking tacky."
Yeah, right!

Re: Cumbria RSOC Day - Photos

They're just Sierras with mid mounted Cossie engines. Apparently the clutches are really harsh. On or off. You have to give it the beans just to pull away. Performance aside, am I alone in thinking they're bloody ugly! Hi, Neither of the above opinions are enough to diminish my desire for said car!...

Hi,
I don't mind black wheels with polished rims, but I definitely do not like the look of wheels that are chrome or polished all over. Way too 'in your face' for me personally

Re: Not sure I like the look of stretched tyres.

Hi,
For the record, these cars were the height of fashion in their time, but as Steve points out, fashions change. They would have been fantastic in their day, though.

Re: Not sure I like the look of stretched tyres.

Oh, and in response to the thread title, I am sure that I don't like the look of stretched tyres.

It just looks like the owner has tried to save money by buying narrower rubber because they couldn't afford the correct size.
