On the scrounge



Has anyone got a spare Alfa alloy wheel that's clogging up your garage or shed? preferably a tele but it's not essential doesn't matter about size or condition as it's not for my car but for the garden.

Thought it might look better and a little more interesting than one of those plastic hozelock reels screwed to end of the house.




Oh yeah and it's my idea and I've got a patented it!!! If I see one of you fekkers on dragons den with it

Thanks but if I'm perfectly honest I'm hoping someones got an odd one that's taking up space. While I don't mind buying a couple of pints for a generous soul I don't want to pay for a wheel.
