Does anyone know which garages around here will stretch tyres without any problems? I know not everywhere is keen on doing it.

I work at Lobitos tyres and as long as u's come to see me personally I do a lot of stretching! Most of the other lads are a bit scared of doing it and turn people away,

Cool! It should be alright then, cos it'll only be a subtle stretch I think.

Thanks for your reply 'scottymk1' too, but you're abit too far for me Laughing

I'm crapping it about the wheels being damaged during the process though Neutral
