What to do? I have a my00 uk turbo running 18 in woolfrace wheel, the dilemma is that all the tyres need replacing and they need a refurb, this will add up to a good some of dosh. now do i go for the refurb or look for new wheel tyre deal? Then what size? have 18`s at the moment but am considering 17`s what are best:confused:

Would need a pic of the wheels,ive done mine meself before.

Would love to do it myself but dont have the time. The wheels are 7 spoke that split right next to rim

I would not fit a car with more then 200 HP with refurbished tyres...
With the 18, you will loose some speed, I prefer the 17.
The ideal would be the Bridgestone RE-070, but if you are budget wise, you can choose Falken tyres, they have the same cost of refurbished tyres and do their job. www.mytyres.co.uk

Hi Max. :) The wheels need a refurb, not the tyres.

was looking at some rota boost. last wheels were a kinda bronze type colour, mrs wants a polished finish(likes shiney things) i on the other hand am not to sure see alot of cars with anthrasite colour want some thing different

avoid them polish chromey ones if you can they go all weird after the salts got to them
plus the lighter they are the more you gotta clean them!

rota do some other colours too dont they do like a bluey metallic colour too? and hyper silver they wil be light.
