    Mrs Claymores 'new' car

    Well, after the rover 75 failing it's MOT spectacularly, it was the only excuse I needed to junk it and replace it with a Ford.




    First job was to pull off the 18" Medusas and fit some 19" Jag wheels



    Surprised to see that it looks bigger than the 850.

    Looks smart on the Jag wheels.
    I've got my eye on something massive from the Jag stable for the XC90... Pretty sure they'll just bend in half though under the weight

    There's probably not all that much difference in size between them.
    I was parked next to a V90 the other day and it made the 850 look like a toy!

    It does seem to dwarf the 850 somewhat :/

    Strange, the 18"s look small, and the 19"s look MASSIVE!

    Do they poke much?

    Lol, the actual reason is that two of the tyres needed replacing on the Medusas (I do have one spare) And I had the Jag wheels sitting there with good tyres doing nothing, plus I'll try to sell the Medusas to recuperate some of the purchase price of the car.

    Nice looking car.
    Probably just me, but i think it looks better on the medusas.
