Hi, Has anyone got an MGF ultra-lightweight charcoal alloy they would sell? A recent puncture led to the destruction not just of a rare Goodyear GSD2 tyre, which meant a wait of 3 months to get a replacement, but also the even rarer ultra-lightweight alloy it was sitting on. I only had four and so this cracked rim means I am down to three - not easy to drive on! These are the forged aluminium ultra-lightweights first offered as an option when the MG TF came out. Sometimes they are mistakenly described as Magnesium lightweight alloys. Anyone? Regards, Dave

Hi Steve, Yes, I have already got the tyres from Camskill - thanks to your earlier post in the tyre thread a few weeks ago. The problem is that when I came to fit them to the rims I discovered the cracked rim. Hence the wanted post for another ultralighteight alloy. I'm still looking :( Regards, Dave [quote=Trophy-Steve]Dave, with regards to the GSD2, try [URL="http://www.Camskill.co.uk"]www.Camskill.co.uk[/URL] they have them in stock (ish) I got two tyres for the rear at the begining of August... took 3 days to arrive cost £183 inc delivery.[/quote]
