    Default my new alloys



    just got myself a set of these in 18 inch for 150notes with a couple light marks on, they are 5x 108 though so will need wobble bolts but cant go wrong for that, they need two new tyres but i think i will get all four. am getting them refurbed in dark grey metalic/gun metal.

    my two questions are what do you think? and if i use wobble bolts can i still use spacers? i fancy 20 mm on the rear and a tad of stretch

    well basicly wobble bolts allow you to fit a pcd up 4-5 mill out but 2-3 is best. just type in on ebay and you can buy locking nuts etc to fit. you wheels should fit, check the centre bore is right, you may need a spiggot ring to get the centre bore **** on, these can also be had on ebay.

    the hubcentric spacer is because i want stance, you dont need them

    Just done some checking the offset and cntr bore is exactly the same, phoned the wheel shop they say that there will be no problems fitting these even with the 235/40/18s they have wobble bolts for £2.50 each
    question is would they look any good on the veccy
    wonder if anyone could photoshop them for me may put a reyuest on the forum thanks for the advice Rob
