    Default What 17" wheels for the 345mm brakes?

    Guys, am fed up with the 19" wheels cracking on these SH$$T roads, & damaging my tyres, so going back to 17". The only problem is that I have the VXR 345mm brakes/discs, so will need the wheels to fit over them.

    If anyone has got a set, or can point me in the right direction, please get back to me.

    Regards.

    Why not just go down a size to 18's. I still think that 17's on a Veccie look too small.

    Saying that though as Plasma (Dean) has said before he can't understand how people keep cracking their flakes, he's had no problems and touch wood I've had mine now for approx a year and mine are still fine even with all the potholes etc I keep finding lol.

    17" Sri wheels look great on the vec imo.
    Only use my 17" in the winter, but as much as i like my 18" I will have a some regret when the sri wheels get put away for another year.
