boss asks me this lunchtime "what you got planned this afternoon"
"having a look at the sud" i say "should be picking up some spare wheels tomorrow" (bet you can't guess who from
"what size are you after" he says.
so i tell him, complete with all the reasons why getting the correct wheels is a pain to clear the brakes/pcd/sizes etc
"have you looked out the back yard?" he says
well, no. i hadn't. didn't really expect there would be anything to suit the sud amongst all the vw stuff, bay engines/gearboxes/beams etc.
"just a minute" he says, then pulls out an alloy from a pile i'd never noticed before. "look owt like?"
well, it did. looked very much like to be honest.
so i brought it home and compared to the sud wheels.
looked pretty much the same, well exactly
the same at a glance.
so off with the front wheel and tried the new one. blow me down it is
exactly the same
called the boss back to see if it was a complete set and he found the other 3.
popped back and picked them all up, free of charge too thanks to my generous boss
so now i have 2 sets of identical rims to use for slicks. very handy as they clear the brakes just right and will allow me to get the most of my tyres, not worrying about turning up with the last mm or so and wondering if they will last the day
YES, i am that tight
