    What size wheels are those, they look far too small in the arches, although it may just be the rubber bands round them that makes it look like that, what size tyres have they got fitted?

    I actually like the style of the wheels, but they don't look right in this pic for the above reasons, they look too small but it might be the angle of the pic.

    Are they 16's with really low profile tyres?

    Don't like I'm afraid, look too chavvy and too small, but each to their own

    Think it's just a bad angle and shadows under the skirt, look like they could be 18's, dish alloys always look a size smaller then they are to me... I think the look pretty good

    I think I agree with Ian Highlander, the wheels themselves a re very nice and do suit well. I think the tyres are too small and so do not fill the arches out sufficiently

    There 18" merc wheels with 215 35 really streched rubber, the angle of the pic doesnt help but only pic ive got at the moment lol
    i may change the tyres for 225 40's but these are like new so not just yet, i had thought of lowering it more but ive had it all leveled and camber etc done for this height so see how they go :-)
    ive got a set of 18" sport stars to refurb as well so will decide which i keep when there done ...
