    BK999 help

    at the moment i have standard sxi multi v-spoke 16" alloys on my sri mk4 wrapped in 205/50 rubber..



    i was wondering how the ride comfort would change if i were to get some 18" BK999 alloys.. (i currently on 44psi at front and 40 at rear)

    1) which tyre size should i got for? 215/35 or 205/40 ?

    2) would my fuel economy get worse?

    3) are the BK999s much heavier than my current alloys? how do the weights compare?


    cheers for any help guys!!!

    With the correct offset+width on wheels it can take 70mm+ on rear and 60mm+ on front
