    Well after much umming and ahhing we have joined the ranks having just purchased an Autocruise Starfire which we will take delivery of in a couple of weeks, can't wait::bigsmile:
    Now as it will be kept on our drive when not in use can someone recommend a reasonably priced but good wheel clamp before someone decides to relieve us of our new toy?

    What's the MG ?

    My first car was a TC. Old banger then. And now, but a valuable old banger now.

    That was also a TC. An old picture 40 or more years ago in my youth:Sad:

    I owned mine around 1961/2 - bought it with a brand new gold seal engine in it. Sold it for £200 if my memory still works.

    Then a TR3a. I got very good a replacing rust.

    I guess our 3 tonne 2l MH could out perform the TC. But not the 3a, regularly had that showing a legal 110mph.

    Hi Rallyman,

    Welcome to Fun see you have bought a good van:thumb:

    If you give us a ring, one of my lot can tell you the right clamp for an AutoCruise and if you tell them you are from Fun, you will get the Funsters 5% discount.:Smile:

    Regards

    Peter

    agreed....any with sold secure rating

    the strongarm appears to be for steel wheels only though.

    i have a similar clamp that is suitable for alloys. HERE

    if you have room infront of the van and can mix concrete then fit a security post in the drive....you need to dig a hole around 1' deep, put the post in and backfill it with concrete.

    security post.

    Thanks everyone for the advice.
    This is all a new experience so I'll have more questions I'm sure.
