Fur­ther thoughts on white­walls

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Fol­low­ing John Lakey’s fea­ture on white­wall tyres (18 Jan), you then pub­lished a reader’s let­ter re­gard­ing a cheaper al­ter­na­tive, ie white­wall trims.

Hav­ing used trims like this in the past, I found that the in­te­rior com­pound they were made from soon de­te­ri­o­rated.

If used for mo­tor­way driv­ing they will soon shred and be bang­ing on the wheel arches – this hap­pened to me and it’s a fright­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. My ad­vice would be for read­ers to fol­low John Lakey or opt for the real thing. Mike Foster, Naze­ing, Es­sex

In last week’s is­sue The Slieve Donard Ho­tel was in­cor­rectly de­scribed as The Slieve Don­ald Ho­tel – apolo­gies.
