    Now i've seen the original mtms i dont think the stud holes in the reps are as deep and think these 18" look smaller than my OEM RSTT's. They might look better when the suspension settles again.

    I used to swear by the michelins too, but these toyos seem much much better grip but are noisy, maybe cos they are so new. What you think?

    I weighed them with my OEM RSTT's and the mtm reps were 2Ib per wheel heavier but the toyo's are brand new and the michelins are like sausage skins.

    I changed the horrible chrome wheel bolts for black ones and they look much better as the centre holes now look deeper like the originals! Ill take some better shots tonight.

    @ s3BOW,

    Erm, i don't think they are PA ones. I got mine from an eBay shop from leigh tyres or something. they were £80 extra for Toyo's in leu of tyres called stunners? Whooooooooooooo? exactly.

    I know there are some really aweful ones out there which i looked at. Instead of a dished centre they had a flat machined centre section which the bolts butted upto instead of sitting in the dish a little - you get me?

    Yeah, I see what you mean. I was thinking about 19s but the leigh versions don't have the ridge running all the way round the apeture. Yet the PA versions do. The picture on PAs site; I wonder if its showing 18s or 19s ? Perhaps the 19s have a little bigger dish.

    Chris.

    The 19s that Leigh sell on Ebay don't have the ridge. Only the 18s do.

    Oh right, i never knew that, im glad i got the 18's then, but they definately look smaller than the 18 RSTT's. Maybe its because of the dish.
