    alloys arrived but?

    Excited today as the alloys are finally here, am just wondering if its worth changing the tyre size to 215/35/18s instead of the 224/40/18 thats on them and bear in mind am fitting coilovers so do you think it would be worth it??..

    depends how much stretch you want.

    If you goin on coilovers i would highly recommend putting a smaller width tyre as it will rub if you go low

    If you don't stick to standard tyre profiles you will need to check the width to aspect ration otherwise you spedo reading will be out.

    Will do but not that fussed to be honest as its only a 1.8 its not supercharged and gets abused everywhere so more of a cruise mobile to get us to asda and back with the shopping mate..
