So im in melbourne, im building an EB. getting towards some finer points, want to get some nice wheels

thinking of 17" low profile tyres and about 1-1.5 inches lower than stock

i was looking around for some good prices. found the tyre factory and kmart tyre and auto are prob the best for price.

any recomendations tips good places to go yada yada yada

also heard some s**t bout if you get bigger tyres rims etc can put your speedo and oddometer out. is this true??????

Personally I don't know about Tyre Factory, my brother went to buy rims there to overhear them talking about a customer car "Just give them retreads, they won't notice."

He went across to the road to Bob Jane for nearly the same price and way better service. www.tempetyres.com.au is pretty good too

I speak from experience, and all I know is that bob jane treated me like crap on two seperate occasions. So I went to the tyre factory and they were outstanding, basically the store is as good as the man in charge, the name stamped above the entrance really doesnt seem to make a great deal of difference.
