Had A Slight Change In Wheels Today!


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, a mate of mine owns a seat ibiza cupra R and is looking for some new bigger wheels. so i told him to try mine on for size.... i have to say, they looked sweet as hell! pics to come soon.

so i put on his 195 16s on my car and wondered what it would look like.... man it sits low!!!! again pics to come.

but then when i took it for a spin on these wheels... i realised just how grippy my 17s are! these 16 where sreechin all over the place.... and the steering has never felt so light! but one thing good came from them... couldnt feel the bumps as much!

guys if u want a nice handlin seo, u gotta go with 17s or the 205 profile...

Hey Mellow, your cars cool on the 17s and on the Cupra rims (I prefer the 17s though!!)!! Have you had any problems with it since youve lowered it?? Im toying with lowering mine but Ive heard mixed opinion........

thanks mepwalo.

no real problems... at first i used to get a bit of scrape on the rear arches, so i just took em off and chisled away the plastic (and i think a bit of metal too) which the wheels were rubbing on...

i have 7.5j width wheels and there is still no scrub on lock... i imagine your lookin at 7js? u shudnt have any problem at all.

if u wanna complain... then it can only be the fact that their is still a bit of body lean... would have liked it to be stiffer, but not spending any more money on the seo for a while.... i gots me a scooby do....

Monday is Judgement day guys cant wait!!!! :drool::afro::beer::yes:

By that do you mean 7.0X17's would be fine & no need to cut the arches or plastic back? Or do you just mean scrubbing?

I don't know why (as I'm so poor!) but I feel the need to look into 17's...

Good luck for Monday! B) Take it easy & take loads of pics! :thumbsup:

hey adubb, i posted this before i got my new car, and i only switched em cos my mate wanted to see how the 17s would fit n ride on his car...

so instead of leaving mine on bricks, i dropped his stock wheels on mine.

but eah i do have a new car - Subaru Impreza. and this is my sisters car now, but i still use it a lot cos the scoob costs a lot to run, and i wouldnt dare leave it in some place i gotta visit for work/uni etc...

but fear not, the seo is still on the 6spokers
