Nice rims Nick,
But a little too big for my taste, you did get lighweight rims right?

Steve - Yeah there was one (maybe you?!) a couple of cars behind me a few weeks ago on the same road, but I turned left and they turned right at the roundabout.

Aref - they can't actually that big for the car at all - its the way the picture is taken I reckon - ppl think they are no bigger than 19s. I don't think they are lightweight but again cos I don't track the car or anything I'm not fussed.

nice! I think it looks great. I will be looking at some new wheels soon also...i think 19/20 is perfect.

The 20's do ride pretty good - obviously I've not lowered it or anything so it still handles good and isn't bumpy.

if i was to choose between 20 inch rims and standard/now 4wd ride height or wider 18inch rims with a nice set of coilovers creating a fat stance i know id go for a fat stance.... well.. i did.. but thats me.

if u prefer the larger rim over the fat stance then thats ur choice and i dont think anybody should say "sorry.... i dont like it'. because its your car.

good on ya, its not my cup of tea but its obviously urs and so stick with it. well done.

Each to their own really I agree.

At the end of the day I didn't want to put lowered springs or coilovers - my car isn't going to be tracked and the way it rides now is basically the same as before. Plus I do Syd drives and the roads out there are shocking.
