    confused 17 OR 18 Inchs

    Hiya
    I am going to have to replace my 16 inch standard tyres very soon and wanted some alloys but not sure whether to go for 17 or 18 inch - any suggestions? 18 may look good but do they fit under the arches and whats the knock on effect on replacement tryes 12 months down the line? presumeably the 17s are cheaper all round? Any comments welcome.
    NB - getting my windows tinted tonight - going for that gangsta look, or maybe not especilaly with the kids in the back

    18s will fit easily - heck 20s go under the arches without any argument.

    cost wise i can't see there being a big step up in price, but the difference in looks will be well worth it. go for 18s

    Thumbs up I Agree

    Spot on Harry.

    Thing is - 17"s cost marginally less than most 18"s anyway. You would always wish you had just spent that little extra.

    18"s should handle better (provided you get the correct offset & decent tyres).

    When I went upto 18"s on my Astra H SRi - I found I could take a Mway bend at at least 10mph faster - safer.

    go half way between wat is reccomended & wat will fit, 19"s , you'll always regret not going that extra inch

    I'm very happy with the 18"'s I had fitted as standard spec, although 19" VXR wheels are soooooo nice & there's a set for sale on the site!!
