Re: Tyres slashed but plus side

Sorry to hear this bad news. I just don't understand the mentality of some people and find it unbelievable that someone would even consider doing it.

Re: Front tyre choice for V6S

Quick pic of the Pirelli Performance Centre. They only take one booking an hour so only ever one car in at a time. Two people work on the car, no machine guns all done by hand.

Hunter 4 wheel alignment and tyre depths all measured automatically as you drive in.
