Oooo so close......but no. :crazy: You've guessed correctly though that it's something to do with the "wheel area" - was it the pics that gave it away...? :biggrin:

Have you done the rears or just the fronts?
How much did they set you back if you don't mind me asking? I am thinking of PF discs when they need doing.
Was it an easy DIY job or did you have it done at a garage?
It's a pity FSTI wheels start bubbling after a few years of use.

Just the fronts...rears still have meat on them.

Done by James @ GRD while I watched, with 10% discount. Did new YellowStuffs at the same time to aid bedding in. :biggrin:
(around the £280 mark IIRC + c£50 fitting incl pads.)

Already feels so much sharper but as the last discs had 52k on them I'm not flipping surprised.

Yeah just contemplating what to do about that, if anything.

Most tricky bit would be to get them done at the same colour as originals.
Or you could always put your name down in the GB for a set of Team Dynamics for the summer ;)

Contemplated that but didn't really like the style, plus I think it works out a better deal if you buy rims & tyres together usually. :biggrin:

Get the tyres from camskill (92 a corner for 235/40/18) and wheels through a GB :)
We could always ask to get the tyres from the wheel supplier but doubt they can do a better deal than camskill.
Can't go wrong with a set of TD 1.2 in white :tissue:

Am preferring Inovit Tarmacs at the mo, and I've only just put on the Sessantas...from Camskill obviously :biggrin:
