Well my tyre chap is spot on, been doing the job 30 years etc, trust him implicitly, and he;s fitted these sets tons of times and he's puzzled (and annoyed) as he cant understand why when you inflate them (they sit on the bead ok) they start coming away even though they're properly lubed/stuck and he wonders if it is the innder lip of my wheel deisgn whioch might be forcing them up and out... mega merga dissappointed.

... however he has a split screen on 14's and he may have them for himself, but still annoying, as he says he's had a set of these on a bay before... grrr. Sad

I expect you've got a small rim protector on the tyre dude, check em in the bin anyway, they'll be fecked first time you get close to a kerb anyways!
I fitted andy's (soabox), they were atlas ones and took ages but they stayed put eventually.

Cheers guys, it does look spot on and I was amazed I managed to do it in under 2hrs (and do it properly as well), especially with a hangover. Its come a long way aint it, from just a stripped out van interior to what it is now. Next job is to make a leatherette panel for the rear door, and paint gloss black, then have a think about the roof lining....
