Awww, if you didn't need adapters that could be a contender on my car. How big are they? When we get to see them on the car?

Check out the Tempe Tyres thread, you'll find nothing but good reviews for there adapters! You'd prolly be looking at the same price as me - $250.00 devliered. Ring em.

Which is more expensive than Tempe Tyres, $70.00 * 4 = $280.00, Tempe are $250.00 delivered to you! A guy is also selling them on eBay.com.au, but he is also more expensive.
