    I mean with the wheel laying flat, lower the car onto the sidewall with the disc pushing down on the side wall. But then again not sure a smart car will be heavy enough.

    I mentioned the front because you have drum brakes on the rear.

    If you’re concerned about damaging tyres you should probably take it to a man

    Don’t be surprised when you wake up in the morning and find the front of your car is also on bricks and your front wheels have been stolen

    joefm, I see..

    McMoonter…which could happen at any time, 1 wheel on bricks or not?

    I do have a security nut on each wheel BTW

    Bare feet and a chisel.

    I have a lump on a foot bone and a holed sock from a chisel incident when making the Frankenbike.

    So I took the 2nd tyre to the fitter who loved showing me his fancy Bosch machine that removed tyres.

    It was pretty awesome.

    So you were simply removing them to avoid the disposal charge or was there another real reason to do it ?

    Those are the toes of an individual who brachiates.

    If you’d read the thread you’d know it was to avoid a trip to the tyre fitting place.

    oh i got that …but i see no reason to do it unless he was simply trying to avoid the disposal fee as im sure the next step will be to go to the tire fitting place to have his shiny new tire fitted and balanced.

    Its the balancing where it all falls down

    Once again, if you’d read the thread he is going to re-furb the wheels before fitting new tyres. Anyway, he ended up going there anyway 🙂
