only want 17" cos i cant afford the rubber for 18" or 19" common how can ya justify the price its nearly double the price just for going 2 inches bigger i bet it dont cost them that much more to make it


i think its more to do with how many they sell, 17"s never used to be so cheap 18"s are comming down so.. buy the 19"s so we all get cheaper tyres :)

yeah i have a set too. no issues.

Ive had a squiz at this crowd on ebay, looks pretty legit but ebay can burn pretty bad sometimes, Well if its as good as you all say Id try em as well for sure, I priced a set of 18" BF GTP style with tyre package $1800 (the guy will come down) so ebay is a heck lot cheaper at $800. But Im pretty keen at getting 19's, my one concern is price of rubber? What difference am I looking at between 18" and 19" rubber? Even just cheap rubber eg. nangkang. Im new to all this jargon.
