    New Wheels

    Hey guys,

    Am planning on getting some new wheels for car but ones am planning to get are 18's and current ones are 14's just wondering what would be best for the spare wheel situation wheather to go down scrap yard and try to find a 18 that will fit my car or to get the foam stuff to fill the tyre. Also would the foam stuff damage alloys?

    Cheers

    your rolling raduis won't change much to be honest because of the different profile tyres you'll be going from and to. i wouldn't worry too much about it. worst case scenario just get a spare wheel from another astra with a larger engine size.

    Just keep the spare as it is.

    You wont gain anything from getting a bigger one as the trye will be smaller
