We can't win this year! We are traveling back from Spain on that Sunday so can't make it. Due to holidays this year we have missed all the events. The only one we are attending is Zedfest next month. I highly recommend the day, last year was really good.

Does anybody have any 17" winter tyres and wheels to fit my 120D F21 1 series? Ideally they will be run flat and 225/50/17 but there are several other sizes that could fit. Need 7J rims minimum to clear the calipers.
