What rubber are you getting on the wheels and are you changing the rolling diameter?
Shout me if you want a hand fitting the wheels, I can change a wheel in lightening speed. Very Happy

Think I'm going to go for 195/45/16 on the new rims... Not too sure how different the diameter will be but I think overall it's about the same. Yeah cheers I'll let you know, cheers Smile

Can't miss out on a good curry night! Tyres can wait until the weather picks up Cool

Got my wheels back from the refurbishers at weekend and built them back up....

Yeah I know what you mean, been thinking about spacers on the rear... Wheels seem to sit in a bit! Problem is on the MK3 there isn't a lot of room behind the arches really
