    Default 17" or 18"?

    Had a bit of windfall and I'm looking at buying a set of wheels.

    I think I've got my heart set on some VXR replicas, but cant decide whether to stick with 17's or go larger?

    Whats you opinions?

    Also what would be the correct tyre sizes should I want to go large?

    that didnt need to much persuading

    18's will look superb mate - have you ordered a tyre/wheel package ?

    or are you ordering tyres on their own

    LOL - My wife tells me I'm far to indecisive, so I've just gone with it this time!

    I've ordered a tyre and wheel package - £530 all in.

    did you get a choice on tyres provided ??? - you might end up with WANLI's or SUNNI's which might detract from your driving experience

    if you have the option to "upgrade" to a better package = take it

    it could save you the cost of having to replace 4 tyres in the not too distant future
