Fitting 15's

Post by Araf on Sun 15 Mar 2015 - 17:32

I think the Wind brakes are lost in 17" wheels, and the shorter sidewall of the standard tyre doesn't give a very good quality of ride, so I fitted 15" wheels to mine.

As well as a better ride, the tyres are half the price of 17" tyres. Smile

lol. Laughing The rolling radius is the same, so the actual diameter of wheel and tyre is exactly the same as standard.

I did lower it on coil-overs, but when one leaked, I swapped back to standard.
