Checking for cracks

Post by Phoenixboy » Thu Oct 11, 2018 12:41 pm

Hopefully not too stupid a question
But going to Collect new 30i on Monday
Am going to check for cracked alloys as suggested
But how easy is it going to be , apart from the obvious?
It’s only been mot’d in the last couple of weeks, so would like to think there’s half a chance they would spot anything obvious by way of a crack.
Just looking for any tips to help spot if there are cracks.
Cheers and many thanks

Good that the mot was recent, they would have checked the wheels for cracks.

I’d take a decent torch and look through the wheels as well as running your fingers around the inside edge :oops:

Appreciate that.
That’s the sort of thing I wanted to know.
