No mate. For getting the wheels round again. Iíll then fit tyres and rebalance. And hopefully theyíll take a lot less weight. If not Iíll sod it and get some decent tyres.

Is there an OOF approved budget tyre?
Michelin PS4. About £100 per tyre (fitted price - be cheaper for you if your place can fit) in Elite sizes.  Downside, they give a bit of roadnoise.

Bit too pricey for me. Iíll try some Toyos and Iíll fit them. They were £50 each last time I checked (225/55/16)

Yes mate thatís what I thought!

Precision Welding said this is easy for them. £35 a wheel 👍

I donít think in this situation thereís much the fitter (ie me) could do. You spin it for the first time and it wants 100g on the inner and 60 on the outer. Thereís either a bad tyre or bad wheel imo

So as said Iím sure Iím due a geo set up which Iíll take care of.

Is there an OOF approved budget tyre? Or do the words budget and tyre not go together lol 👍👍👍

CD wheels are practically undamagable ???

I would suggest that you find a real tyre fitter...

The tyre fitted in question is me you cheeky f***er! 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

Absolutely could be my shite tyres. But Iíll spin the wheels without the tyres and see what I get

Couldnít agree more stemo. These guys driving as if itís not raining to me is mental. But on the other side of that I probably do need a full geo set up and decent tyres.

On the subject of alignment I remember marksDTM mentioned the use of an airbag to help with setting front camber (as it is a pain in the arse with me holding a bar whilst mate tightens strut bolts). Anyone ever used one and if so was it super helpful?

Cheers boys.

I suspect the geometry setup is out of WIM spec cos I did it two years ago. Iím doing that again very soon. However I do have shit tyres (cheap BCTs). The only thing going for them is that theyíre so hard theyíve been on for 3.5 years and still have 6mm tread 🤔🤔🤔

Hi guys.

I went on a boys trip paint balling and I drove the passion wagon (the omega). Other than the wheel balancing on the front (😤) the omega is stable in the dry at speed. However in the rain it felt really unstable. I am a bit of a fanny in those conditions i will concede but I dropped down to 50-55 in the slow lane and it was ok. Then there were Audiís and BMWs bombing past at warp speed.

Whatís your experience of this in the omega? Can u bomb it when itís pouring down?

Omega General Help / Why are Omega wheels so hard to balance?
« on: Yesterday at 12:39:52 »
Omega is coming in to the garage for a bit of work. Exhaust replacement, alignment and some service bits.

Anyway while itís off the road for a week or so I aim to get the front wheels balancing sorted.

Now I will preface this by saying our balancing machine is erm, old, and I have previously questioned its performance but Iíve had them balanced next door too and though it gets better itís still never perfect. So anyway Iím going to take the tyres off and drop the wheels to precision welding for them to get true and then hopefully theyíll balance up and job done.

However Iíve heard others mention the difficulty so what is it about them?

Ps mine are CD wheels

There is an identical car parked outside (no street lights) here. I will pinch his for you. And I will post them free of charge to you to restore your faith in human beings. ;D
