C5’ d summer wheels

Still got the winter tyres on the golf. Which were obviously a waste of time and money as didn’t see a snow flake of the white stuff. Not that I’ll admit the waste to the wife!

Summers have being sat in the shed so gave them a spray with ipa and then a coat of C5 in the sun. Did the center caps too in the hope it will slow down the white worm.

Won’t be putting them on in a rush as not using the Golf, using the wife’s as she’s working from home. And the every now and again it does go out it’s not going far or fast!

There's no slowing that devil!!

One chip or tiny mark and bang... It's in.

Still don't know how manufacturers get away with diamond cut clearly not fit for purpose..

I had a mates sub 12month old golf GTi over and the allows honestly looked like they were 10 years old not due to the owner but just the finish of the alloys discusting really as even 8/10 wheel refurbs don't even help

Winter tyres are designed to provide much higher grip at temperatures lower than 7degC where the rubber on summer tyres becomes too hard and stops providing grip. They aren't just for use in the snow and in my experience on a Honda FRV which is useless in the cold due to its weight, they are invaluable. Not sure of the difference on a golf, I expect less so but I can guarantee they will stop you quicker through most of the winter than a summer tyre.

Haha, grass has taken some work!

Water everyday and cut every 3rd.

And then the ginger monster wee’s all over it. Next door have a laugh a minute as I walk round the garden with a watering can waiting for her to wee so I can water it away!

Prob the best it’s guna look all year to be fair. when it gets warmer, and the dog sneaks out for a wee when the wife’s in the office, no one to water it down and the burnt patches soon appear!
