Opinions are needed please!

Id like to have your opinions please as I'd like to change my alloys at some point, but at the moment Im just trying to find something that looks nice and that will fit properly Give me a few months so that I know the cars fine, then I can talk wheels Or if the tyres wear out before hand

I have these in mind. I had a set on my Rover Turbo Coupe and I loved them. I was aiming for a size at 225/40/17 OR 225/35/18.

I know the 18's are going to cost a few more quid when buying and replacing tyres, but what does anyone else think? The only other alloys that made me look twice was OZ's Turismo model (the multi spoke model?)

I'd just like a few peoples opinions before I set my heart on something and then have it crushed when they dont fit!

Thanks again guys! [/url]

See your driving a classic mate. Be sure to get the right tyre widths etc. To wide and it may well rub on the arches. Just check all your options first before you buy.

I'm looking into everything, I was hoping for a wider tyre mainly for just having something bigger to try and calm down the beast!! :twisted:

I loved the Kahns on the Rover I had, really made the car loads better. I did like the Turismo's I think they are called, they looked 8) as well, I might have a set of them Also Im told I could perhaps fit a set of 19's on there?! Who in their right mind would do that!?! I will go no bigger than a set of 18's (only cos Im told to get 18's over 17's!) so no probs or worries there.
