he's got a point - you'd pay about that for new wellers iirc

the rears are a bit too wide and the stretch makes it look a bit golf cartesque. kinda cool in their own right though
Yep, too wide, but quite cool.


I think i'm going to have this done to a set of the 15" Golf steelies, with about 2/3rds of the dish of the above wheels.

One day. When i re-mortgage!!

your forgetting tyres are about 130 EACH
That doesn't make them more desirable!


Why buy those wheels that are too wide, look a little silly unless you are going the whole hog with "teh look" and then also be confined to buying tyres that cost nigh on £600 a set.

Is this the price some people will pay to make their car look "wicked" and likely do all sorts of un-pridicible things to your handling, geo and suspension - Oh and MOT failings too unless you spunk more cashola on arches.

I feel old...

I just cleared an MOT and the tread doesnt stick out any further than mine, The metal bit on the other hand ...

What does the offset of those compare to banding a set of Eunos steels? I am toying with sending my set off to be done and I am pondering what width to go to. Was thinking 14x8's as I want to retain the stock tyres (or go up to 9's on the back with 195/60's if the stretch was too much) but would i still need arches (i'm guessing an ET0 would be where they would finish)? Not a big prob as i can get a set for under ?50, but would rather not have to chop the shell about.

Cheers

surely some nice looking steel rims would be a better start?

i'd never consider putting money into 14" rims. 13 or 15, maybe but 14s are throwing your money away
