    Hi guys

    Plan was to use my old S-Line wheels as my winter wheels when it comes around, coz i don't want my lovely VMR's getting destroyed!!!

    Now i have the TTRS brake setup on the front, my S-Line's wont fit (haven't tried, but the 19" VMR's are close as it is) :think:

    Anyone got some cheap 19" wheels that they don't want? Don't care about condition, just need legal tyres

    Anyone make any recommendations for any?

    Cheers :happy:

    Slap on a load of wheel sealant and drive away at them over winter - Had my BBS CH on cars now for over 3 years and still perfect :)

    Im the person that was being rather nosey the other night when you were in krispy kreme,
    I was looking as yours looks lower than my S3 which is wound all the way down on KW's,

    What the hell are you feeding your brakes Jordan? They seemed to got even bigger since I saw them AITP. :)

    By the looks of the clearance you have, 19's it must be !!

    Just buy lot's and lot's of wheel sealant

    I use shiit loads of sealant already, but due to the brakes covering my wheels as soon as i think about braking, they just get fcuked anyway and i have to clean em once a week

    Can't see myself doing that in the snow.....

    I'm glad you said wheel sealant and not "tub of vaseline"......

    Thank you Mr Banker, but no deal
