Re: Plasti Dip

I might have a go at painting them so, anybody know what other Toyota models wheels fit the Altezza? was thinking of picking up an old steel wheel from a breakers and refurbing one alloy at a time.

Plasti Dip

Anybody any experience in using this stuff on wheels? My standard 17's are in a bad way, the usual corrosion and lacquer cracking. I don't have the cash to get a refurb so I was thinking of covering them with Plasti Dip for the time being. Would I have to prep the wheels first or would I get a good ...

yep, comes on with the ignition and goes off as usual, I reckon I'll just go back to the test center during the week, it's only a visual re-test so surely if the ABS light goes out it will pass the NCT?

Rear tyre wear

Just wondering how long peoples rear tyres are lasting? I've gone through 2 sets over the last 28000km, would that be normal? the first tyre was some cheap chinese brand, the second was Goodyear Eagle F1's that didn't last pissing time.
