Me likey likey, summer rims maybe.?

20's not going to be very forgiving though working around London.

It’s running B14’s as low as they will go and 275/35 tyres. No rubbing at all. It’s firm!

If I keep it as a daily long term I might have to look at either raising the B14’s or larger profile tyre. I’d also consider running a winter setup, perhaps some 18” banded steel wheels.

70% of the time is fine. Poor road surface and you know about it. If there’s a dip or hump its interesting lol.

I totally feel your pain, and your '2 min' title is genuinely about spot on for us darker colours.
My customers expect to see my van looking tip-top for each job, meaning i'm currently spending around 8hrs a week cleaning mine. I only did mine yesterday after another long distance trip over to a job in the depths of Norfolk, and it's now raining:mad: which means although it's saying dry tomorrow, I know the rain today will leave the roads damp for my early start to the depths of Kent, meaning by the time I get to my job, it will be filthy again.

I love Black in the Summer, but loathe it in the winter :(

However, moving from similar wheels to you, over to my current banded 19s has saved me several hours a week in wheel detailing :thumbsup:

Yep going to do the same next year I think. I’ll look out for some banded ones mid summer.

Do you details caravans and Motorhomes? How far south do you come?

We offer 2 services. We either apply a semi permanent protection to new Caravans and Motorhomes, or the main part of my business restores common fading issues that effect most manufacturers from around 2 years old, normally starting with a dull front panel. So depending on what you have, dictates what you will need.

We cover the whole UK.
I'm at ME14 tomorrow, Southampton last week etc etc. :thumbsup:

If you need more info, just PM me.

@kn0bby those rims . . . .

looks like they come in 4 different profiles . . . The Vossen VFS-1 is available in three different concave profiles. Flat, Deep and Mid, super deep.

https://vossenwheels.com/wheel/vfs-1/

any idea what profile your ones are?

also what width and offset? and any idea of the load rating?
