Thread: Rim details needed!

  1. #1

    Default Rim details needed!

    Hi guys, finally got round to sorting a deal on a c2 vtr... potentially again! The only problem is that the car is wearing some fairly horrible (IMHO) 17" Alloys. Its not that they are in bad nick, but they're just not my thing!

    The car is in silver and I want to keep as small a diameter as possible as I'm going to be paying through the bum on fuel- so i'd rather not have 17s messing it up even further. 15's would do the job perfectly- so hypothetically would anyone fancy swapping a set of 17's for a set of standard rims or something a little smaller?


    If not...Does anyone know the front and rear offsets that I need for c2 wheels? Also if anyone knows the PCD that would also be a lot of help.

    DO NOT GO DOWN TO 15"

    16" Smallest on a C2 to make it look any good

    Agree with the other comments, keep the wheels and get it slammed Get the calipers painted and your sorted. As for MPG i've got 18" wheels on mine and haven't noticed any difference whatsoever.

    Ah cheers guys- I didn't realize that the standard rims were 16".

    Just on a more money conscious note- I'm thinking that 17" tyres will be expensive, are standard tyres any less tear inducing?

    keep the 17 mate....and get it lowerd, you dont have to go mega low for it to look good -35mm will be enough!! as for tyres..the are pretty decent brands for good prices out there!!
