…the snow-pocalypse posts are coming!
Yup, winter is pretty much in full swing here, so I went and bought myself a set of winters.
Well, I went and bought stage 1. Spotted a set of wheels with tyres for sale on the F3X UK Facebook group, sadly I was about to go on honeymoon so left it. When I got back, they were re-advertised, now £500 cheaper than 3 weeks ago. Done!
My car came with the MSport Plus spec 704M wheels but they’d been kerbed by previous owners. These were refurbished and painted anthracite prior to me buying the car. With the painted finish, they would be the ideal candidates for winter wheels where I wouldn’t need to worry about the salt getting in about the OEM diamond cut finish.
So I actually bought a new set of summer wheels, 704Ms with anthracite insert, wrapped in barely used OEM spec Bridgestones. They were fitted to a brand new car that the buyer decided to upgrade to 20in MPerformance alloys, they’ve barely lost the mould hairs!
Now I just need to source a set of winter rubber for my current wheels. Having these is making me debate lobbing one in the boot for winter, allowing me to go for non-runflat winter tyres which could save around £400
