    Winter wheels

    Hi guys

    Plan was to use my old S-Line wheels as my winter wheels when it comes around, coz i don't want my lovely VMR's getting destroyed!!!

    Now i have the TTRS brake setup on the front, my S-Line's wont fit (haven't tried, but the 19" VMR's are close as it is)

    Anyone got some cheap 19" wheels that they don't want? Don't care about condition, just need legal tyres

    Anyone make any recommendations for any?

    Cheers

    What the hell are you feeding your brakes Jordan? They seemed to got even bigger since I saw them AITP.

    By the looks of the clearance you have, 19's it must be !!

    Just buy lot's and lot's of wheel sealant

    I use shiit loads of sealant already, but due to the brakes covering my wheels as soon as i think about braking, they just get fcuked anyway and i have to clean em once a week

    Can't see myself doing that in the snow.....

    I'm glad you said wheel sealant and not "tub of vaseline"......

    So wait, my wheels still get used in winter (the whole point of looking at winter wheels) yet you get to look uber cool?

    Thank you Mr Banker, but no deal
