    Love em, always have but for some reason in the past they never did the right rim width or offset for the cars I had. I am a fussy ****** who has to have the offset and rim width as right as possible. But thats me.

    ***** to clean but a top wheel.

    Hi ABYSS, according to this url http://www.ozracing.com/oz2005/ita/a...=1438&lang=eng and I hope they are right, the answer is yes. Need to do some further investigation.

    Maybe one of us should start a thread and ask the question....
    I will let you know how I get on. I planned to fit 225 40 19 tyres giving a +0.81% difference to the 205 55 17 (makes the speedo read 70.57mph at actual 70mph) so I dont understand where the vx dealer thinks it would affect the gear ratios - someone please correct me if I'm talking daft again!

    Vehicle : i500

    Trim : i500

    Engine : V6 3.0CDTi

    Year : 2005

    Default

    this is whats in the car and accessory price guide 6 dec 2004


    not avalable on 3.0 cdti models, includes sports suspenion, 19in alloy wheels will affect the vehicle excise duty payable on 1.9cdti (150) models-see page 3 for details of CO 2 emission figurs167g/km in addition,due to increased CO 2 on certain other engines there will be a slight increase in benefit in kind charges for company car drives

    so it must be to do co2 emissions (Euro 3) on the car tax band and car benifit charges for company cars

    but i order 19in on my private car not company, but still said i cant have 19in only 18ins

    and now with Euro4 coming in is that why all the deisel are a second down on last years models
