Possibly cut off by the fire brigade. They don't mess about on a car fire and don't care what damage is caused.

They've not been cut off.

Due to storm damage, I need an original 6x14 Momo Vega Alloy Wheel, as pictured.
Putting it out there early, whilst repairs to my GTJ are being organised.
Anyone got an odd one lurking about?
Thanks.
That's the pretty little GT Junior. Wondered why he didn't buy a new wheel, but a used set is selling for £1000! Can anyone here help him?

That’s one reason I would never let one of these TV Programmes drive any of my cars....

Not that they are pounding on my door, mind you...
