Brera/Spider/159 kerbed alloy poll

SO, as some may know there seems to be
a lot of very bad drivers who kerb their
lovely wheels on the newer cars.

Especially the 18" 7 holes (Mugello)

So let's see if there really is a problem.

This poll is for 18" wheels.

Further polls to follow to compare with other sizes.

Bring the Ti down here and you can
driver it round town for a couple of
laps and see if you come out of it with
undamaged wheels.

I've never kerbed a wheel in Antibes but I did try to rip a front bumper off once (on the wife's old Astra SRi Sportpack)

Did manage to navigate Antibes with no issues but it was a close call

Next time you're down , try taking a spin round the ramparts
and then back into the old town up through the marche provencal
during a market day.
Guaranteed wheel scraper.

I did a full circuit - through the Place du Marche to the harbour then on the return from Nice via the ramparts. Even had to avoid a parked coach in Place du Marche.
