Well I dunno .. whether its worth the hassle I mean ..

I found these guys

ooh

And I located a match for my other 'good' side

ahh


It's a part worn, and the same tyre as the good un... with the same depth of tread delivered to my door for 100 notes in 2 days from order

Checked it .. its perfect, and allows me to get the rest of the wear as a pair before I need to spend big bucks for a new set

Top service

*edit* should say.. its a 250 quid tyre new .. but to find one (and its a reasonably rare tyre) I rekon thats reasonable and less than 50% wear too

Plus my local tyre guys did me a changeover for nowt

Pressure of work caused my eye to stray from this attractively titled thread. I see now that it was a serious oversight.

Still, I have to admit to being "down Mexico way". South of the Border, as it were. Just.

Almost a sort of No-man's Land. The Most Northernly County in Ireland, but not in the North. Part of Ulster, but not Beholden to Her Maje. One of the 26 Counties but largely forgotten until the Government recently realised (too late) that we had a vote.

I'm holdin' out for a Pan-Celtic Archipelago....

The Candidate of my choice was soundly trounced by the lads with the Armalites today, so I'm smarting a bit. Trying to seek solace in Broader Horizons....

Are you still sure I can't park the mobile in your side street?

So, do you live in that part of 'Southern' Ireland that's further North than the most Northerly part of Northern Ireland?
