Yeah, I’ll get them in and working first mate. I’ve been looking online this morning and I’m pretty sure the LEDs aren’t road legal already got a bulb error light but I think that’ll be cured by a bulb in the registration light circuit. I’ll try clear that then fit the lights, hopefully the error will stay off!

I have to turn my lights onto main beam, then off again….that clears the bulb out. It doesn’t always happen either.

I’ve taken the plunge and ordered a set of these for the caddy…..my current tyres are knackered, and I fancied a change anyway!

I wanted some merc style monoblocks, but the price has gone mental for those🤷🏻‍♂️

They vary massively... Some 18" lightweits can be just over 8 kg, or some heavier ones ~13kg. Thats a bare wheel without tyre.

:shock:
I may have to rethink this! :lol:

Luckily I’ve got a bit of time, as I opened the first one and it was fitted with 255 45 18 tyres, not 225! :lol:

They looked like the wheels off the blimming fire engine!

I might cancel the order when they come to pick the other ones up …..we”ll see what they look like
