    Default Help needed Tyres or new wheels?

    Hi guys, right i am really torn between just sticking new tyres on my GSi alloys or getting a set of BK999's

    currently wheels have 215/50/17 but if i go with replacing them i will get 225/45/17 to make it nearly £50 a tyre cheaper.
    Can get a whole set of Pirelli P6000's for about £450 inc fitting, balance and tracking etc.

    Now for the other option..

    A set of BK's the grey brushed steeel effect ones are around £550. But i then have an option to put Avon ZZ3's on instead of some rubbish ditch finder tyres.
    making £650 all in.

    If i am honest i cant decide if i want to part with £200 extra cash or not.
    I could save that money and put it towards my PS3 when GT5 finally comes out.

    suggestions welcome lol

    if you get new wheels sell the old ones you might nearly make up the extra your paying out anyway. although i prefer the look of keeping vaux alloys.

    The BK999's are the vxr replica's and they have the griffin badge in the middle so look just like the vauxhall ones.
    good point on selling old ones but i would like to keep them for when i come to sell the car.

    If you shop round you can get 225/45/17 Uniroyal Rainsport 2's for less than £100 a corner fitted. Got them fitted to my Vectra and they're the dogs danglies.
