    Default Snowflakes 18" or 19"??

    Looking for some snowflakes for my veccy. Seen some 18" with six spokes compared to the five on the 19" ....... Has anyone got the 18" fitted and have any pics or thoughts?

    Not many about up north but the odd set of 18's about.

    Have to say, I prefer the look of the 18's.

    Also, the 19's seem to be plagued with cracking problems.

    id go for 18's. i have 19" snowflakes on mine,
    -ride is terrible due to the state of the roads as you will have to have lower profile tyres
    - 18" tyres are slightly cheaper
    - 19" wheels are more prone to damage (cracking) if you hit a big pothole

    dont get me wrong i prefer the look of 19" more, but 18's are more practical

    The snowies look no different and with the better ride and strength looks like 18's it is.

    Damn eBay, won a set of 18's but only ever heard once off seller. Been onto eBay today and they taken action on seller .....

    So still no snowflakes!

    Don't spot many up north but any leads on some welcome.
