Hi, has anyone got 18" alloys fitted? Are there any problems?. My street pack ones need straightening an two need a refurbishment. Was thinking of just replacing them. Probably stick with 17" was just curious about the 18"

No problems whatsoever with the 18's fitting wise, won't rub at all if fitted with 35 profile's, just there's the problem - a 35 profile tyre. Doesn't soak up anything at all. I'd stick with 17's personally (despite the fact I won't go above 16 :P )

What colour alloys do you think will look good on a vision blue fez. I'm thinking of white team dynamics imola. But they also do shadow chrome and silver.

Your roads are probably smooth as Egyptian silk though! UK roads are more like tarmac-ed Swiss cheese.... :wacko:
