New 17" fitted to car

Postby guynkate » Thu May 10, 2007 11:47 am

I fitted a set of 17" black alloys with polished chrome lip and they look sweet 8)

but i am bit put off by the fact that it now looks like I have the same wheel arch clearance of a Land rover :(

I will look at lowering it in a couple of months but I think that a 30mm drop will still not make the car look any better, any pictures anyone?

Wheels look good any pictures of them fitted to the car? What size tyres did you fit? I have just bought a set of 17" but I can't fit them until my insurance renewal in August. By that time I should be able to afford to buy some tyres, probably 215/45/17.
