Yeah but for $250 a tyre i can get Falkens, which aren't too bad of a tyre, and 18's have a pretty big price difference to the 19's.


Yeah, you can keep your falkens.. depends on which tyre it is though - my mate had falkens on his wrx, no traction, ever.

Ever wondered why your mate uses ribbed condoms? so when he's f**k you he can get traction...

Hmmm, second hand tyres, good idea, lol. Well I'll see how I am after I get the car on superlows.

Anyone had experiences with City Suspension at Slacks Creek, on the service road alongside the M1?

Sorry mate I mean all up. 1 and 2 are $1300 without adapters, postage, and 3 are $1400 without adapters, postage. Price includes low profile tyres.

Appreciate the effort there doofdoof, but they're 17s and chrome. Might look a tad too small on the mont, but thanks for that input there mate.

To tell you the truth though, I think all three suck. Like I've been saying over and over in these kinds of threads, go for some nice 17's


well said, im assuming he doesnt wanna spend more than $1400 on a new set of rims & tyres so thats why hes limited to those three 18"s.

Personally i would spend $1400 on a nice set of 17"s (with alot more choice for the money), than be limited to choose from three crappy low end 18" rims.
