    Yep moved up from the standard 17's.

    The handling i'd say improved slightly as you dont get as much "roll" on the sidewalls as you do with the 17's.

    I changed the ARB's after that & it makes the ride a bit harder after that, but nothing unbearable.

    All in all in my opinion it's a better car to drive...

    well my situation is that i was looking at buying Prawns S4's or buying some second hand.... more recently seen some brand new 18" gallardos on ebay for £575 and was seriously considering as 19"s arent highly regarded for handling by the experts on here - given the offers what are you expecting for them?

    I was hoping to get around the 600 mark, bearing in mind how much i paid for them...

    Maybe that's a bit optimistic is it?

    I'd consider any reasonable offer though :)

    Different Stud pattern, you can get replica's in the correct offset that bolt straight onto your Cab, or you could even get 4X Genuine Gallardo front wheels and they should go straight on, but they will be expensive! ;)

    4X Genuine Gallardo front wheels :faint:

    they would be worth more than my car.
    will look into reps but i dont think they would dish in as much.
    do you think they would suit my car?
