    I grew up in Romford, we had a "Deals on wheels" in London Road. I used to go there on my bicycle and dream of one day owning a car and fitting it with wide wheels.
    Eventually I got a HB Viva and fitted it with slot mags.
    But the front ones had too much offset, and one day I clipped the kerb, this ripped the steering wheel out of my hand onto full left lock, with me ending up across the pavement in a fence!
    I may live in East London, I may have a number plate that reads "Chopt", but I do NOT use 6" wheel spacers!

    I used to work there in '78 / 79. The F Series Victor in the pic was owned by the manager, Steve Henshaw.

    Bought my first pair of Wolferace wheels from Deals on Wheels in Romford. 7" x 15's and went on the rear of a '65 Galaxie. Couple of years later and they went on the front of a '68 Javelin and another visit to Deals on Wheels for a pair of 8 1/2" x 15's for the rear with L60 General Scrambler tyres .

    I Have a hazy recollection that Deals on Wheels was owned by a married couple.....she dropped her XJS? into a ditch in Stockport area and he came to sort things out and dropped his Corvette? into the same ditch behind her, there was a picture....

    Or am I mad and senile....
