    You can get your standard alloys re-furbed in a different colour

    Ahh but that extra inch gives you more room to slam it lol

    If you want bigger rims mate there is no real reason why you couldn't get the Kei Force 10s re-furbed to black too Other than the expense lol

    Thumbs Up Alloys

    Hello. Have just gone through the same exercise on my 'Club'. I have had the sizes checked, and was advised not to go above 17 inch. My tyres are 205 x 40 x 17's. Having checked this, I'm now told that they're undersize, and I should go to 205 x 45 x 17's when I have to change. I have noticed that 4000 RPM is 76 MPH or thereabouts. Previously this RPM gave just over 80 MPH. It now corners like its on rails. The only drawback came a few weeks ago when it was frosty, and a few occasions I went 'skiing'!!!!

    Nice car though I do prefer the 5 door look!
