t*ts out
« on: May 12, 2011, 07:32:03 pm »
Titanium SS wheels that is; out of the shed and on the motor in place of my beloved 16s.

Quick whizz round the block and I'm thinking it feels a bit more planted despite a bit of new-tyre wheelspin.  One question - I had to whip off the locating studs for the 16s; do the SS wheels just do without?

(Given the particular low grade of soft cheese the wheels are made from, I think i could have just pushed them onto the studs - the 1st wheel was a bit like that...)

    I love mine to bits. ;D
    The rubber is allegedly better than on the standard wheels although the wheels themselves are heavier.

    Should be fine without the pins. My OZ wheels do without them.  :thumb:

    Yep, much heavier according to my lugging-them-back-and-forth-to-the-shed test.

    I already love them SJH, but I still love the 16s.  I suppose it's like having a mistress.

    Joe, it's a good job you're built the way you are with those spindly white things.   ;)

    Yours must look almost identical to SJH's now Mr Needsmust?  :)

    Or are they white?

    Think mine has a twin too, according to Abarth, when they put my number plate in the system, a different name and address come up! World's unluckiest car for sure  ;D

    Hmm, which is heavier - thickish glass or thinish steel?   (no motors or ting with the fisso)

    We'll need a weighbridge.
