That is so cool....... :cool: :cool: I wanted to go for 20's but didnt have the nerve!!! Ended up with 19.s, are those 9.5J rear and 8.5J front?? Take my word (from bitter experience!) watch out for potholes!!! oh, and regularly check the tyre sidewalls. I found on previous 20's that they were susceptible to break down.

Pics of a sidewall blowout on my lowered 306 cabby running on 17s (normal tyres are 15s) - proper brown trouser moment :eek: :shock:

Is it just me or do those tyres look like they are just about to pop off the bead, pot hole or no pothole?? I've seen some stretched tyres in my time but that is a step to far imho. I have to imagine what a track day would do to them!!

Wheels are 10" rear and 9" fronts!!!

Stretch is pretty minor really, 225/30 front and 245/30 rears.

They look more mental due to the lack o sidewall, they are sealing perfectly and are quite sound. :D

Nice wheels Andy, good choice. How much did these set you back if you dont mind me asking? What make are they? Im looking at getting some new wheels but just not sure what to go for. I was thinking wide, multi spokes

i'm not too keen on them, i think the car loses a bit of it's character now, the massive lip on the alloys looks a bit odd

Compliments for this awesome Rocco!
Do you perhaps know the offset of your rear wheels? I'm looking at some 8,5x19 and 9,5x19 wheels right now with offset 35, but for the 9,5x19 rear-axle there's also a ET 27 available. Your info could help me in my decision between offset 27 and 35...
