    Default New alloys

    Seeing as 2 of my snowflakes have small cracks in, I have decided to get rid and get some fresh alloys. I believe the 19 inch snowflakes are et43, and I can't seem to find any alloys with that offset. Does anyone have any pics of wheels they have chosen, and what they look like on the car with a different offset? Be most helpful, cheers

    I quite like these, but im not sure if the et45 offset would be a problem on my 2007 vec sri, what do you guys think? Maybe im worried for no reason but anything like et40 or et45, im worried will either stick out too much or not enough, and look silly or runi the handling. any advice greatly appreciated as my snowflakes need to come off asap

    They do look nice eh. But I'm worried about the et45 offset, that will take it inwards right?

    The snowflakes are 8" width so they will only occupy 2mm more arch space which is perfectly acceptable.

    They will look exactly the same from the outside. The tyre size is staying the same so the tyre wall will be in the same place as it was on your other alloys. The only difference will be with the extra ½" rim width which the tyres will be able to deal with no problem.

    Great, thanks for the advice. Its not a cheap do buying new wheels and seeing as I've just paid out money on four new 19 inch tyres, I want to make sure any new wheels will still look good, as the snowflakes look great, shame they have to go

    Yeah I had a look at those as well, I was tempted but I preferred the multispoke design after a lot of deliberation!
