For a while ive been thinking about getting the wheels and as soon as i have the money i will be getting them!!!

I worked out that it would cost me 529+400 for tires = 929 from my dealer. But then with the 20% of voucher (that i got with my car) i can get them for 743.20.

400 for tires seams a lot, but Mountune told me not to go with anything cheaper. Is this true? Or can anyone tell me where to get cheaper tires?

My GFs cousin works at my dealer and need to speak to him about his discount he gets their to see if its more than 20% etc...

Really excited about the thought of getting them, just hope the price is right and the money can be found :D

What size are the wheels? You could try Blackcircles etc and other online places for tyres, they have some good prices.

When looking to upgrade my Zetec alloys my Ford dealer quoted me eye-watering prices for 17" tyres. Much cheaper elsewhere.

Funnily enough i have this page bookmarked from before! Do you think i can get a black center piece or maybe the covers from mountune?

Does make sense to buy these for nearly half the price... AHHHH lol

Im not sure about the spoiler, the car is on Ford options so in two years the car will be going back and dont want to spend toooo much money that i wont be able to get back! :)

Thanks for the links though Jonny!

Should probably be able to get black caps. Failing that you can always spray other caps...

Didn't know you was on the options thing though! what will you get next eh? ;)

Might be a little out of the price range! But never no, might land a massive business deal and make millions over night!

I have looked around the Topgear.co.uk website and found they do a 15 inch version. What you think about them? There only 100 cheaper, so if i was gonna get them id would want the biggest!

BUT

Mark told me about the 3% difference which might be an issue, is there is a way around it?
