Oubaas Gets New Shoes
Rubber boots to be more precise. 😉
Wanted to drive off to the gym this morning and noticed rear left tyre was flat. 😦 It’s already the third time with that specific rubber. 😦 Obviously it withstands all attempts to repair it mostly unimpressed. As you know I wasn’t too fond of the silly 225/45 profile anyway, so on a whim I decided to get Oubaas new wellies all around. Here we see one of the fitment specialists trying to figure out how high a profile my van can take.
As it turns out 225/65 will fit … snuggly. But it fits!
Byebye skinny roller-skates, hello fat adult tyres!
Even the emergency wheel got brandnew rubber.
In front of the grocers: Looking good, looking stately, looking like a thousand bucks. And the driving … I can tell you, it’s like floating on clouds. And, I could swear, even parking manoeuvres are more easy now.
5 new wheels wasn’t cheap. Unexpected and rather unwelcome. But I guess in the long run I saved us some money. Because we won’t go for cheapo new rims now but stick with our lovely ones. And once Oubaas get’s power steering the 225 width won’t be a problem anymore anyway.
Alea iacta sunt.
