Went to see these blokes today for some new tyres on the 200, great to see how much the business has grown since the last time I was there!

Wow. It looks like a proper shop now. Before, it just looked like a warehouse with tyres piled to the roof.

When I was there a little over 12 months ago it was just Brad and Jeff, with one fitting machine and one balancer. Now they have 3(+?) fitting machines, 2 balancers and two extra staff. Great to see!
