never got to take dolly :-(

Post by vnuala on Sat 25 Aug 2012, 5:11 pm

Crying or Very sad Well after getting my tyres for Dolly and getting someone to come and fit them we came across another problem Neutral as i had said in a previous post,she had 2 odd tyres one being so old it was in the old metric sizing.The first tyre went on great but the second would just not fit as the wheel rim was 12 1/4 inches (315mm)so we put the old tyre back on but as it was 615mm wide it was rubbing on the inside of the wheel arch aaarrrrrgggggg so after spending all day last saturday phoning around scrap yards i managed to get an old 12" austin metro wheel rim with all the (fingers crossed) right measurements.I havn't been able to put it on yet to try as my mother in law was rushed into hospital on sunday with pneumonia so all things where put on hold,i did get to take the kids away but we had to take the tent Sad I am going to get the wheel sorted next week and then go away for a weekend in Dolly sometime in September,not booking yet as i dont want to tempt fate Wink
