I've just bought some winter tyres, and for expediency had them fitted to the rims that came with the car. Now I want to put the summer tyres onto a new set of rims. Then in the future I can do the winter/summer switchover myself.

My local tyre merchant seems to have a good range of "Wolfrace" rims, but most of them are a bit, um, boy-racery!

I wondered what other options people here recommend? Ford original parts tend to be very pricey, although there are some reasonable secondhand options on ebay (at the same kind of price as the Wolfraces). I've heard that there was a recent period where the Ford rims were considered too weak for British roads. Would want to avoid those....

Any advice (or links to other threads!) most welcome!

Have something to contribute?

Buy steel rims for the winter tyres, I bought mine in the summer for a lot less than they charge in the winter.
