    Vehicle : Vxr in red




    Default Quick question regarding 18' alloys

    Hi guys, only had the vxr a few days but am looking at replacing the snowies on them. Ive seen these

    http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/vie...id=09609320561

    which look like replicas but is it a good price and can I just swap the tyres over (I assume so)??
    Was thinking about some 19s but must say the ride on the 18s is quite pleasant. Had 19 snowies on my last vec and it was a bit firm. Plus id need new tyres.
    Do you think the replicas look ok. Is there any real difference in appearance?
    Cheers

    Brilliant thanks for that think they definitely look better then the snowies. I assume vx never made the vxr alloys in 18s?
    Just want some decent ones so wondering what price id expect to pay for some. 360 seems quite cheap I think.

    those are 19s and IMO look better on a vxr. I find the ride is spot on on mines and far better than 19" snowys I had on my old vec don't know if that's because of the ids set up

    Would love yo have the 19s but I know they are going to cost a bomb . Would be good to get a ride in a vxr with the 19s . Im hoping it wont be much harder . Its not going to be back breaking anyway is it lol.

    No it isn't IMO even with my 3 kids and wife in it! kids are 12 and two are 10(twins) if you lived closer you could have had a go in mines. keep looking on eBay and the forums find a good set of 19s and sell your old ones on probably won't be a big cost to change
