    Default 18's or 19's

    I think im being messed about by the guy i was meant to be getting some cheap 19's from so have started looking at other options.

    Should i;

    a) wait till spring when we sell our house and buy some new 19's for £1K
    b) Take the plunge and buy a set of nearly new 18's ive seen with Toyo proxie tyres for £450.
    c) Buy some new 18's on ebay for £699 and hope i could get £250 - £300 for my elite alloys

    If i choose a) i have to spend £240 now on 2 x 17" front tyres as they really need replacing (2.5mm left)

    hhmmm, if you happy with 18's then i would take option 2... as you still have the original wheels as winter wheels or as spares.
    for 18's with toyo's we all know that £450 is damn good!
    however, if your just gonna think to yourself "damn, i wish i'd have got 19's" then wait!
    thats just gotta be the worst thing when your not overly pleased becuase you know you could've had 19's!
    you'll prob end up getting them in the end, thus wasting money on buying the 18's. if that makes sense (it is a bit early)

    Did you get the last mail I sent you? I dont honestly think you are getting messed about Andy, the guy was on a half day and obviously hasn' read his mail. If you don't want to go ahead that's no problem they will go back on fleabay I suppose but at that price I would hang on till Monday mate. If you dont get a call on Monday then I would look elsewhere but its not in his best interests to intentionaly mess you about, he will want them sold.

    Ah cool.... i didnt get you last mail mate, i had left the office. I rang the guy myself about 4pm and got told he left about 2.30 so presumed he'd decided to not resell them at that price and just relist them. I was gonna wait till monday anyway and see if he called

    You are one of the lucky ones that leave work early then! Nah, sorry I didnt reply straight away to your mail but I was in and out of ****** training bloomin IP phones all day

    On experience with dealing with this guy I tend to have replies to my mails at about 8:30 on a morning so he must check the mail when he gets in to work.

    I would go for 18`s Andy, especially with Junior in the back, a good comprimise between ride quality and looks. With hindsight I think 18`s are the best choice and if I were to replace mine I would put on 18`s, the 19`s are just a little harsh, even more so in the winter when the tyres are cold and a bit harder ...

    I look at like this: If you're gonna go bigger, why only go an inch?
