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?




If you are upgrading I would say go for at least 17" Personally I would go for 18"

What do you mean 3% difference?

I would love 18s but the cost of tires is to much for me! At least i think so :) Also i only got a 1.25 engine and the bigger the wheels the slow i become lol

3% difference in reading on the speedo. So if it says im doing 30 im really doing 33 because the gear ratio in the speed is set for 15s not 17s...

You are right about the tyres! I'm a bit shocked by the cost of them, I have 13" on my 98 Fiesta and tyres only cost about 30...

I see what you mean about the speedo, but if you have lower profile tyres then the overall size wouldnt change that much, even if it did then i'm sure that the speedo can easily be recalibrated, as all fiestas have different sizes i think. Also i think that speedos are usually set higher anyway, to be on the safe side. Wouldnt suprise me if you were doing 30 and the speedo showed 33.

All this talk of alloys is making me want to buy something like this

http://www.topgear.c...40_18_tyres.php

Really like the black with chrome look... Will match my car!

Also my car will be coming with the 17" XPak alloys and I reckon I could get a good price flogging those! I think someone on this forum is looking for some also.... Its all so tempting!

3% is absolutely fine - speedos are all out by such a margin anyway.

black with a polished lip is so ooooooold now, and the lip will corrode like a !Removed! unless your bathing them daily in the winter months to wash away street salt / grit etc
