225/50. 60/65 profile is too tall and looks stupid.

$100 each wont get anything special, but you can get new ones for that I'd say.

Sorry to be a party pooper, but, make very sure there are no cracks in those wheels.

I had two of the 17" versions crack.

Cheers

It was a long time ago but I reckon on one of the spokes where it meets the rim roughly.

You could see it if you looked carefully.

All I did was run the wheel and tyre over the corner of a low kerb on the edge of a driveway at walking speed, a large pothole would have been a bigger impact. Lost all the air overnight!

Just give them a good checkover and you should be right.

hey guys didn't get the rims, guy never answers his mobile so just ended up; putting more fuel in car etc, just gonna get new three for these fair Mont rims for now, wanna get the problems fix with the steering before I look at getting new rims, and especially if these are easy to break etc

So plan is to fix negative chamber and steering with new three and brakes.

Hey guys had a awesome day of battery going flat on me today, so going to be looking at getting a different alternator and some new battery terminals, luckily a guy with a van gave me a jump start, especially with 3 kids in the back.
