hey all

well, with my new 17's and the KYB/lovell suspension setup, my guards need rolling ASAP - they've started to do it themselves going around certain corners, and i need to get them done before i do some real damage to the paintwork :?

can someone please let me know of any places in perth where i could get it done.

cheers :wink:

hehe - low 8-)

i didn't put the stuff in myself - prev owner did. its KYB shocks & lovell superlow springs. i've fitted it now with BA XR8 replicas in 17's, wrapped in 235/45/17's. to touch the top of the tyre, you have to angle in up under the guards - hence where my problem arises, as on full lock, the tyres are hitting the guards :?

pics in my gallery should give you an idea - but i can get better ones if ya want :wink:

I ran around for almost 3 years with the tyres rolling the quards out (Im a lazy bugger). Than I had the tyres changed for rego in Jan this year and I noticed about a week later they werent rubbing anymore. It appears that my local Jax tyre centre (Smithfield) rolled them without me even asking and didnt charge me a cent for doing it. Now thats what I call service.

my xr8 has just had the same problem although ive expected it to happen long before now with how my car sits. so it is around $100-$120 for the front pair does that mean that its the same price for the back pair?
regards from adam

$100 for peace of mind is a small price to pay when it comes to paint work, especially if you love your care..
