Yet another post

any way how many people hav ejust the stock 15s on there cars cause iam going to go to my few local trye places; bridgestone, frankcross, robertson etc etc and get various quotes on 15 wheels like the steel ones and also going to enquire if any 5 stud wheel pattern cars that come out with 16 inch steel wheels like any make model because i couldn't be bothered getting alloys cause want something differnet

also any one know the legalitlys of wheels aadpators (like change e seirse to AU/BA/BF)

what should i expect to pay for like wheel and tyres. cause if i can say go down newy and get a cheaper deal i won't bother up here...

just spoke to a tyre person he said that the AU wheel should fit an an EA but only problem would be if there is enough clearance for the brakes brake lines and all the s**t associated with the wheels.

well i am going to say f**k this idea. went back to the same tyre place and i explained the situation and he explained nearly everthing need to know about tyres wheels and he expalined to me what an offset is, (had no real concept of offset thought it was something to do with the stud patteren but No.)

and yeah was going to set some snowflakes of a mate but his father said 100 then changed his mind know 150 f**k it ithink i will get some second hand tyres to do me so i don't get defected and then get some AU XR6 replicas
