    I've just purchased some new 19" alloys. The dimensions are 8.5j x 19", what stud pattern (and offset) should I be asking for? 5 x 112 or 5 x 100? Been told different things, can anyone help? Cheers

    Thanks for clearing that up madvw... to follow up on this. Does anyone know any places online (or not) that offer a really good service at a reasonable price for tyres? Thanks in advance

    N3LLY -

    If you're in Manchester, try Event Tyres in Trafford.

    They do great prices and the best, most careful mobile fitting service i've ever come across, (and it's free)
