    what wheels are they out of interest? alloys should fit ok. They'll scrub with those tyres tho, you'd need to replace them with 225s or 235s

    N8 will be along soon and offer his wisdom....

    i found this website for anyone struggling with what tyres to fit.
    Tire size calculator

    if you cant get the tyre size exactly right is it betta for your speedo to be too slow or too fast?

    I thought it was those ones, around £800, then you can sell the tyres, you want to go 215 or 225, I have 2 brand new Falken 225s for sale if your interested.

    Cheers

    ive asked him if he'll do them cheaper without the tyres. he sold a pair before for only £560 with tyres. ill have to see how much i can get them for as i only have around £700 to spend.

    seems like a reasonable price for those. I'm after a set of the same wheels in anthacrite when the funds arise. Is it easy enough to powder coat on top of the previous black powder coat or would they need stripped?

    To do a proper job, you want to strip, blast them, then powdercoat
