    Thumbs Up new 16" sxi alloys help

    got me some new alloys
    like this one

    but 4 off them and one has a big inch squared kurb mark
    £100 whent and picked them up last night
    got some questions about them

    1.
    i want proper bolts for them + locking wheel nuts
    what size am i looking for? shall i just search for astra locking wheel nuts?


    2. what size tires do i need?

    3. im going to get toyos for them, which toyos are best
    i want good grip but i dont want ridiculusly short wear

    4. how can i fix the kurbing? (will post pics later)
    where can i get the right colour paint for them?

    thanks

    205/50/16 will suffice, toyo t1r's are recommended by some members here. to sort the kerbing they will need refurbing. i see you're in beds so give griffin autos a call. they did a great job with my wheels and they're only in ampthill. if it helps aswell, you can pick up cheap tyres from here and get them fitted after they are refurbed

    just refurnished them today myself mate
    they look brill only did 2 off them in the end as the others where in really good nick after a clean up so no point

    no there not the wheels i bought
    mine are 4 stud

    how much am i going to get charged to get them fitted and balanced ect
    is there a chance it would be cheaper to get them from a garage?

    probably looking at around a tenner per corner. always helps if you ring around garages aswell. i've personally found nowhere cheaper than camskill

    they rebalanced and refitted valves and tyres when they refurbed mine, although not sure wether they offer it as a service. pm either c9rum (craig) or astra20t (russ) they'll soon let you know
