Bog standard 2007 Honda Civic alloys ,they look fat and small ....just used to seeing it on 225/40/18's. I was quite surprised how bad the Blades are considering they are only 2 years old and have been treated with Poorboys since I got them......pitting and paint flaking off !!!:confused:

Blades are bad for this mate.

My blades went like this when I had my Type S. A few other members have had the same problems.

I think esse esse got his fixed under warranty.

This is the second set and were only warranted for one year,so no chance of a claim there then :confused:

Yep I did ... Luckily for me the wheels had been refurbed before hand and the dealer certainly agreed that the refurb had be done poorly. I wonder how they will fair this winter. Can't afford a spair set at the mo i have to pay for a wedding.

Probably so but I'd still mention it to the dealer and see what they say.
