Hey there fellas. its that time of year we all come to love.... the tax return :)
I am in the hunt for a set of tyres. But if i can find a good set of 16" rims with good boots on em i will get the rims. Question is, i am lookin for a rim somethin like this..

I've decided on 16's cos i'm only a trainee, so that equals s**t wages and cant afford tyres for anythin bigger. I've looked and 17's, i'd love to get em but dont wanna pay for tyres. Just out of interest how much would a low profile tyre of resonable quality be for a 17?

you can get copies of the ba xr wheels which look similar, with the whole chunky 5 spokes. im pretty sure they come in the e series offset in 17". As for tyres, shop around for a set of second hand ones. lots of good quality tyres out there second hand with lots of tread left. should save yourself a fair bit.
