This is the second one of my 16" Black Speedlines with a new tire on that is totally F##ked.
The first one was knackered by way of a pot hole putting a flat spot on the rim so the new tire I put on would not stay on the rim. So I ended up with both Alloys in the garage with new tires on and ended up fitting some 14" Steels from a Fiat Punto.
I had to get some new tires for set of speedlines I still had on the rear for this years MOT which went ok and passed.
Then the other day I was going to work, which is down a narrow road, enough for 2 cars to pass if you tuck in. Which I did, I felt the front nearside wheel go over something and then there was a LOUD POP and a clang.
I was only some yards from work so I rolled into the car park got out and had a look, nothing out of the ordinary back tire was a bit low so I though I had hit something and it had knocked the air out.
So I finished work and decided to changed the back wheel for the spare, I got the wheel off and further inspection of the tire I found a small split in between the tread on the tire then turned the wheel round and found there's a 3 inch gash on the inside rim of the Alloy.
Plus the Alloy has a Flat spot as well.

So now is the time to look for some 16 inch Steels all round....
