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.

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.
