What 16s?

Recommended Posts

Can't wait gonna get some 16s at last for my black Arosa Sport.

I have spent ages surfing the net and stuff trying to decide whicjh to get.

Your advice and opinion would be great.

My fav at the mo is OZs Hydra:

Plus where is the cheapest place to get wheel and tyre packages off the net. Cheapest i have seen so far is Wheelworx (advertised in Max Flower).

16s are a nightmare cos there's such a lack out there. take ur time til u find one u really like.

as for best deal... i rang some companies such as wheelworx, wheelbase etc etc to get the best package price. then i rang up the importer/supplier of the wheels to find my local stockists and made them price match. then u dont get the risk of mail order and u get the wheels fitted for you!

Thanks for your replies. Looking like either the Lenso or OZ's then. Prices at Wheel Workx for a wheel and tyre package are around £560 (Lenso) and £615 (OZ). I could do with some better pics of the Lenso to see how deep they are.

Could I...

As for the OZ Polaris they are nice but not that many places sell them anymore.

Oh and Altern8 - the best of a bad bunch - cheeky begger smile.gif style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" /> Suggest some others then!

What is the correct size and offset for a 16 incher to fit onto the loop? What tyres are you guys running on them?

Why don't you have a look at these, they make the lightest wheels on the market:

Some of them are a bargain at only 49,000 yen a corner!
