  2. 19" Inch Wheels

    Tesla Model 3
    So this is not a thread about "Where is my car with 19s!?!?". More a discussion on why we think there is such a hold up. I'd like to know people's opinions on why they think there is a delay. Also why they have been removed from the M3 spec builder as an option but are still available in...
  3. Rusty Wheel Hubs

    Nissan Leaf40
    I have an Oct 2018 Tekna 40kWH Leaf which is showing signs of rust on the wheel hubs, particularly at the front but on all four wheels. See photo. It's not in an area which touches the brake discs or pads so it is not polished off as you brake and cannot be accessed unless you remove the...

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Just a heads up as I have to find them in the shed, at least one is refurbished rim. As soon as I have them I will post here, lower price for Ampera Forum members. Phil

  6. Winter Wheels

    Renault ZOE
    I’m hoping someone can help or advise. As we’ve now bought out our PCPd Zoe, I’m thinking of getting a set of winter tyres which I’ll look to use half the year. My intention is to pick up a set of steel wheels and put winter tyres on these however I’m aware that my car has the TPMS system...

  8. Wheel cleaning

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Am I correct in thinking that the alloy wheel cleaners that you get are just for the wheel spokes? Can you use it to clean the brake disc too? Should you/How do you clean the brake discs? I find they are getting red/dusty quite often probably because of the regenerative braking/less use of...
  9. Which Alloys Look Best?

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    Hi Folks I'm just finalising my Passat GTE saloon order, final choice, which alloys? The standard look fine, but the other two options are only £105 more and there will soon be lots of Passat GTEs in the staff car park. Can't decide so thought I'd ask the experts. That's you guys btw! The...
  10. Aftermarket alloy wheels

    First Generation Ampera and Volt
    Has anybody put aftermarket alloy wheels on their Ampera? I love the car except the wheels which I categorically detest. Before I spend quite a lot of money on some round metal I'd like to see whether anybody else has done anything similar. Pictures would be great! Thanks in advance :)
  11. Loose Wheel Nuts?

    Renault ZOE
    After nearly a month and 400 miles, my new second-hand Zoe had developed a strange knocking sound from around the front offside. It sounded like a worn CV joint - unlikely with only 2.8k miles on the clock - it turned out to be loose wheel nuts on the front offside wheel. Re-tightened to 105 nm...

  13. Winter tyres for Tesla Model S (not from Tesla)

    Tesla Model S
    The Tesla tyres/wheels are very expensive and, from what I have read, the tyres are far from the best. I looked around and eventually talked to Damian Healey of wheelbasealloys.com, who told me that the wheels for a BMW 3 Series E90 will fit a MS - the offset is the same or nearly and the...
  14. GTE Wheel Fitment?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hey all, I need some help here... I just got offered a set of VW Interlagos rims for my new Golf GTE. Specs: 18x8, ET41 -> (5x112) My worries is the offset, will ET41 be a problem? Specially thinking about keeping front wheels inside the wheel arches? -> Also, my car came with the 16" alloys...
