Post  lewis1641 on Wed Mar 09, 2011 11:10 am

about a million!

porsche boxsters that are about to come off, g60 steels, 14" ronals, 15" tsw's, black porsche cup 3's, bbs rs, vauxhall 15's x2, think that's it for my car! some are for sale though to be fair. i get bored very easily and its a simple thing to change. plus if you buy sensibly it doesnt ne4ed to cost anything

minor fail tonight.

the wheels are 15" porsche space savers. 5.5 wide and et30.

i have a set of good toyo proxes but aqt 195/50 they look like balloons on these skinny rims.

options - try 185/55/15's - have a pair on some wheels but just sold them tonight. typical.

keep them strictly winter wheels and source some 175 winter tyres

at least i now know how those wierd space saver tyres look when they are inflated!

i know space saver's aint up to the job dude, that's why i fitted the 195/50/15

going to go with 175/50/15 winter tyres.

not much narrower than standard 185's (thinking insurance'/police intervention in the event of a crash) but norrow enough to be ok on 5.5j rims. winter tyres are supposed to be narrower anyway, eg gareth's rs4 has 255'd from factory but recommended winter tyre is 235

Yet more proof (if any were needed of what a scene whore you are"

A Whole post of " oooohhh look at how scene and cool I am am, not only do I have scene summer wheels I also have scene winter wheels " .

Can the site admin start a forum call "dub scene" just for dave please?!!
