Hi guys

I know it's a bit of a longshot...

I managed to buckle one of my front wheels on that collective travesty that is known as the Belgian motorway system.

It may not be repairable, so I need to find an 8.5 X 17" with E34 offset in the classic style. Doesn't have to come with rubber. No problem if it needs a refurb either, as long as it isn't totally rotten.

If any of you know of one, please let me know.

Just outside Leuven.

There was literally a crater in the road. Didn't see it too clearly as it was pretty dark.

They're not too bad on the ring road, outside of that, it's pretty bad

well its rare i can tell you that i travel all over belgium every day, some parts of antwerp and brussels are a joke yes but never anything to cause a buckled wheel, all of the motorways are good as well, you sure it was the road and not something on the road, you might be able to put in a claim against the local authorities if it was the road. ps i will be taking it easy near your hot spot. :M5launch:

Bit late for claiming now...

There were 6 os us in convoy, everyone hit it.

There was a guy in a Saab who was obviously quite away in front of us when he hit it. He was at the side of the road with a knackered wheel, fitting the spare when we passed him.

Shame it's the quickest route to the 'ring
