    Default thinking about different wheeels

    had the irmscher stilas now for 4 months and now thinking of changing them

    the ride seems to be a lot harsher , i know this is probably due to the tyres
    also they seem to be picking up a lot of kurb rash , i did catch the kurb with one of the front ones and one came with a little bit of damage

    but it seems that yet another has been kurbed ( other half denies this and keeps trying to blame it on potholes !!!)

    the way its looking is the fact that i will have to have them refurbed which will cost about £260 and will need new tyres in the near future , so its probably better to get new wheels and tyres and sell the stilas on

    The harshness is due to them being a 40 profile and 225's. The kurb rash is down to the driver, no wheels will stop that, just need to he more careful. Maybe look for a 235/40 or a 225/45 and check they have a rim protector.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
