Nah, they are not hard now, they will harden in 1.5 to 2 years. By then I would have done some more changes

Ya I agree that does seem underinflated, but surprisingly it is not. I am running 30 psi in all 4 tyres. Had it double checked early morning & late evening, it is holding 30 psi.

The tyre is actually sitting in a mini pothole, guess that is why it apprears how it does.


@k a s h

A new set of 4 rims would cost 16k






Cheers

Guys,remember earlier everyone specified the price,so please do continue,as it is great information for everyone,there are many rims i really love so i have pmed people,if many people like the same rim,all will pm him then his inbox will be full,and instead of enjoying his time looking at stuff on T-BHP he will be just replying to pms.
Comeon guys post the prices,dont be shy or think that maybe someone bought the same rims for less.They bought at a different location at a different time.

This is normal. Brake discs are made from grey cast iron, which rusts very fast. But this stops once the entire surface is covered by a microscopic layer of rust, protecting the material beneath. So it is nothing to worry about.
