    Default Alloy's Down grade help

    When I got my siggy (1.9 150 CDTi 56) last year, it came with 19" snow flakes... free upgrade i didn't pay for (ex VX management car).....lucky i thought i was..................BUT

    It's used as my company car, so doing 20k miles plus a year, and it gets driven hard! so wife not to happy about paying out for tyres at 170 / 200 quid per tyre !!!

    Any ideas on where & what i can get some decent 17" wheels (probably get a set of 4 with tyres & wheels for the price of 2 x 19" tyres!)

    Cheers

    Sylvie

    I would have thought if yours are in good condition you could well get £500+ and wheels in a swap with someone on here.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Two things!

    1. I have a set of facelift SRi Alloys, with tyres, ony done 12K miles. How much do you want plus mine for yours? Or I can px my 18's - Ace 189's.

    2. Have you looked online for tyres? If you gotr to Kwik Fit / ATS you will pay top dollar, but shop around and you can get bargains. I am running 18's, hence why I have the SRi alloys I could sell / px, and 4 new tyres costs me £300.

    £90...................!!! i want some.... well, 2 to start with!

    Miy Alloys are ok, but have a fair few kurb marks... i'm sure the curbs magentically attract my wheels.

    Any good internet site to get tyres?

    I sold my flakes for £700 and bought some pre-face sri alloys for £200. Not sure if the facelift tramlines with big wheels as badly as the pre-facleift. I am glad I sold mine as the drive has improved.
