I think that's the picture quality. I don't think they're as blue as that. Actually there was a set of 17s he had up for 100 which didn't sell (first alarm bell) but the pictures mostly show them looking like your grille accent!

One of the pictures is a bit more reassuring though.

He's agreed to sell me the 17s for 100 cash...

I'd wait and get 18s somewhere. They look far better. Fills the arches better.

Thanks Keifer. I expect those ST ones to go for quite a bit more than 120 though. I think I'd be happy with 17s, especially for 100. Most sets I've seen have been around 3 or 4 times that...

Just got the old warning flag popping up that's all!

Hmm. Will 18x8 wheels fit without problems? I suppose I'll need rack limiters?

I've decided not to go for either the 17s or the 18s this guy is selling. I'd like to go for the 17s as that seems the least amount of hassle but I'm re-enrolling as a mature student this September and cash is a little tight.

As ridiculously cheap as this seems, my car already has wheels! If I'm going to allow myself to spend any money at all on it at the moment, it's got to be on something it doesn't already have or is fairly cheap.

You should have rack limiters with the OEM 18" wheels as they are wider.

Welcome to the turning circle of a bus.

I already have the turning circle of a bus with my 18s but I have a set of 17s ready to go - do I need to remove anything when I swap them? Rack Limiters etc?

If they are factory fit 18s then it should have come with rack limiters.

I can't see why you wouldn't be able to remove them - I don't know specifically how though.

yep factory fit.  Um stupid question but where are they located? Where should I look.  

I like the look of the 18s but the turning circle is awful.  Not sure on the ride either.

Turning circle is dismal aye. Quite embarrassing sometimes in the local Tesco car park when things can easily be misjudged !

Seller had already agreed to part with the 17s for £100. As I said I'm sure the St 18s will go much higher. I've told him I'm going to pass but I've still half a mind to have them...
