Wheels and Tyres?

Hi
I have 17 prodrive alloys which are getting a bit worn looking. Been thinking about getting them refurbished. I also need new tyres all round
I was going to get some toyo's, fitted for about 90 a corner.
Whilst on ebay I saw these:

Im thinking about buying them and then putting the prodrive on Ebay.

Any thoughts

Kev

I think they look good. I'm a big fan of dark wheels at the moment.

They look the same as the OZ Superlegga's (is that the right model?) personally, I think it would be a right pain to clean, I think theres a site where you can put on alloys you like with a out line of your car so it shows what its like... I'll see if I can find it

Less spokes mate easier to clean!!

I'm wondering whats best for me, cos I do a lot of miles, I dont think a real soft tyre is perhaps the way to go!!

A mate said it the tyres once run in stuck to the road like glue

Sounds like one hell of a tyre mate!

I love the Golf Mk2's... :drool:...

Motorway driving aint gonna be a problem, I think it'll be the track days I'll start doing that will kill them off!! Maybe some 17's or something for the track and 18's for the road?? I'll find some prices out...
