    Winter Wheels

    What are you running as winter alloys?

    Thinking about taking the Bentleys off during bad weather conditions that are going to be on the way no doubt, probably have them refurb'd a different colour while im at it.

    Just dont know what wheels to have a cheap set ideally but something that looks half decent like lol, so anyone got sum for sale ect?

    Not sure what sort of money you were after spending but I am sorely tempted by these: eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

    Just bought some winter tyres(vredestein wintrac extreme so i will use my standard five spokes for winter and get some s4/fat fives or simular for my summer tyres ,anybody tried these winter tyres?,also ordered dieselgeek panzer undertray because i ripped off the undertray on the a3 last winter and at least the sump gets some extra protection.cheers Andy

    16" wheels just go over 312mm Brakes - so i think the minimum you can go would be 17's
