Re: Can a second hand car have too few miles?!
I'm constantly amazed at how large wheels have become.
When I was a child, a mini had 10" wheels, an Escort had 12" or 13" (like a Cortina), a Granada rolled on 14"s and a big-car (xj6) - had 15"s...
Nowadays 15"s are the starting point and they are often considered as castors.
The way things are heading, it's the smaller-diameter wheels, that have the restricted choice of tyre.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
