    Default Pre-face SRI alloys on a Facelift SRI?

    Has anybody got The older pre-facelift SRI alloy wheels on a Facelift SRI?

    Ive always liked the look of them and fancy a change if they look ok.My main gripe with the facelift SRI alloys is that the alloy sticks out further than the tyre so the first thing that gets damaged is the wheel.

    Pics would be great

    Thanks

    new tyres with rim protection will remedy that. or just get wider profile tyres. simples. or you can even fit this http://www.alloygator.co.uk/

    I think the op may be referring more to the spokes getting damaged as opposed to the edge of the rim. Very rare to see a facelift Sri without damaged spokes

    I was almost tempted to buy a set on eBay last month for my facelift, but they all needed new tyres. Would be ideal if they were 18".

    Yes. I did it after catching two of mine on a high kerb. I also managed to get 5 so I have a full set and a full size spare, which I much prefer than the space saver or inflation kit. No probs with fit and no more scraped alloys. Will post pics later, snowed it at present. Don't think I saved any picswith the pre wheels on
