    If you want to scratch your wheels to pieces and ruin your tyre side walls then go for it. Plus you will need a balancer and a selection of weights.

    Seriously get the pros to do it. I know a kwik fit monkey can do it but it is not as easy as it looks.

    I know as I have changed thousands of tyres.

    Are we smitten with the track! Lol if you sign up early with Nick BMWCCGB you get the early bird discount. I have already paid for three from North Devon going to Cadwell Park on the 7th May 2013. Because we paid before prices were set we got it at £150 per head instead of the £169. And we are looking at what other ones we want to do next year. Snetterton was great even though I spun and hit the Armco at Murry minor damage to Black for the track mainly bent the exhaust so have to decided what to do soon about the weapon for 2013 don't really want to bend "Black" like it too much but then???
