    borbet t

    i got some new wheels but turned out that they didnt fit so my mate bought them off me, i decided to look for some more wheels and i like the look of borbet t's, seems that in england u can only get them in 16", will 16" look good on a mk4 astra with a bodykit or u think there gonna look too small?

    thanks

    Depends the styling of the bodykit buddy, guy on wheelwhores has then on his euro stled mk4 and they look awsome, however his is slammed to the deck where as we cnt get away with that here due to the speedbumps ect.

    16s on a mk4 dont work. never has never will. even if it is on air ride.

    there to small. there perfect for astra mk3 but not a mk4. imo never put the same sized wheels on a car that comes out the factory with them. 16" is the average size on a mk4 with big tyres.

    its all about 17 on low pros dude. imo

    Disagree there charlie, depends on the look hes wanting to go for!... that saying in this country 17s would be the safer bet.

    the bodykits like d2nyg but not the same just that style lowered on 40mm springs. i thought 16s might be a bit small but i think they look good without bodykit and slammed

    show me one decent mk4 on 16s. regardless of style. the arches are to big. 17s are perfect for the mk4 regardless of style.

    235 tyres on the above charlie, and were not talking about your coupe here buddy!.. theres a starting point for everyone and the astra above i think looks tasteful for what it is and for how it looks.
