New alloy

I've got my new alloy wheel - Hurrah!

New tyre too! (and a matching one on the other side). See the previous post for more about it, but basically I hit a massive pothole at about 50mph (in a 60mph limit) and it blew a tyre and destroyed the alloy in the process.

The bill came to £334 / US $499 (ouch!) and that hasn't included the tracking yet (which I'll do on Thursday when it's in for it's 2 year service). It was £150 for the alloy and the tyres worked out at £90 EACH, but they're quite good ones and have speed rating V so I can drive 149mph with them :) (shame the car only has a top speed of 106mph lol)
