Dang! Just about what I've been looking for wheel-wise . . . but wrong side of the planet for me. :-( They look very nice though. Are they OEM or aftermarket?

May well be selling these same wheels in the UK soon, just need to make sure the 18" ones don't ruin the ride first!

Jon aren't you moving from 18" ones? Is that for ride reasons or did you just want spares?

Sorry to OP if this is classed as hijacking, but I figured it was a free bump!

My 16" tyres are like balloons compared to the 18". But they hang on in the corners fine. 17" are thought to be ideal for handling. 18" look nicest.

I'm sure there have been at least two maybe three occasions where I have hit pot-holes that may have broken 18" rims. Jon knows of one that several of us hit up in the north-east, that had everyone out of the cars looking for damage.

A lot of comes down the roads you drive on. I'd love to have 18" for the looks, but the roads I drive everyday would suggest that may not be a good choice.

IIRC, my old TR7 had 175/70 x13 on it. At the time that was a pretty wide, low tyre...:biglaugh:

Surprisngly that pot hole that made me swear didnt do any damage to the rim and I went all round the tyre feeling for any damage or bulges. Nothing found. !8's may look "nice" but when does one sacrifice nice for sensible. !9's and 20's are ridiculous in my mind. We are driving on roads that in most countries leave a lot to be desired surface wise. We are not driving on a race circuit. Its like buying shoes that cripple you but look good ( sorry ladies but its true) The best solution is something that looks good and does the job its intended for. The other thing about big rims and low profiles they offer no rim protection if your unlucky enough to even touch a kerb
