    Sorry another question, if I was to put steel wheels on will I need new wheel bolts. Currently running 18" wheels but not sure how long the bolts are :-/ Any help would be good, cheers.

    Sorry for the late reply, I am not to sure, mine is an '07 2.0 TDI 140 sportback FWD so i am guessing the brakes will be the same size. I also used my standard bolts.

    Why do you want to go smaller than 16"? price?

    Cheers for the reply mate, the wheels you got from mytyres are they new rims or refurbes? Only want to go 16" as I beleive that is the smallest rim that will fit on my car, and it will reduce the cost of the tyres ;-)

    These are my standard wheels and these are the 16 inch steel wheels and tyres from mytyres, brand new wheels. I guess if you wanted to go cheaper, see how much it is for just the tyres and find some 16 inch steelies at a scrapper or ebay?

    Also, with the 16 inch tyres I found my car is more economical, not to much but for example with my 18's 500-520 miles and the winter tyres 540-570 a tank.... all depends how you drive though!
