so......what have you done with the tyres??

Tyres still with fitter, they have had no contact from, Black Circle, as from today.
I have now collected 5 useless numbers from them and still no contact, 4 working days gone.
Really hacked off now all hopes rest with. PayPal.

You think you've got trouble trying to seat the bead, just think of this poor bloke.

I once fitted a scooter tyre onto a car wheel rim for a bit of fun. Of course, I needed my Cheetah.

I had a mate who set his bmw up with tyres fitted like this. He used his car for drifting and posing in. Wouldn’t get it within 6 inches (15 centimetres for the metrically disadvantaged) of a kerb in case he scuffed them!

Nope, that is the edge of the rim. They deliberately put on a tyre which is the correct diameter but way too narrow for the width.

PayPal to the rescue! At last contact from, Black Circle.

Now unattainable, so have had to change, fitter, and gone for, Michelin Latitude Sport 3.
Was offered, Avon ZX7, but previous experience of these very poor wear so I paid a little more for the, Michelins.
Very happy with discount offered.
I'll let you know on, Friday how's its gone.

All fitted at last!
A lot quitter than I expected so, Pam, should be happy with less road noise.
One lesson learnt if using, Black Circle, "Pay with, PayPal".
Tested out today on the, A11, Monsoon conditions and a lot of flooding and standing water.
Can confirm, "A rated weather", well rated, very impressed.
