Excellent. You should sell the pictures to Haynes, yours are far superior.

You mean the gentleman from Poland that frequents this site from time to time, I agree though not really a great idea & only technically useful if you fancy loosing some weight! :lol:

Aimed at beginners, but useful nonetheless!

A couple of years on, I’ve had another look at this site. They are still the best piccies I’ve seen on a “How to” theme yet. Haynes should recruit this guy now.

Best tyre prices on the net at mo :

Fitting is done by National Tyres & Autocare centres

The prices quoted are fully inclusive, and even cheaper than National’s own site!

A lot of other online tyre shops charge extra for fitting, valves, balancing & disposal of old tyres.

This is nice:
