Alloy Wheel Issue

Recommended Posts

I have a '57 2.4 Alphie which has aftermarket alloys fitted. I had 4 new tyres fitted in June and last week the nearside front developed a slow puncture. I took the vehicle back to the place that supplied and fitted the tyres and they said the problem was due to a leak between the two parts of the alloy wheels. The wheels are (I think) "SSR Vienna"  and appear to be 19in diameter 8.5 or 9J width but I can't find the size stamped on the wheel (the tyres are 245 R40 19). My question is should I get the wheels refurbished of opt for a new set of alloys ? Any advice would be gratefully received.

I had that problem with my Skoda. Was forever down at Sainsbury‘s topping up the tires. When it was time to get new treads I took it to a local tire shop that specialises in alloys and they sealed the alloy when they put the new tires on. Didn’t cost any extra. Haven’t had the problem since.
