Ok as i need a new set of rubber for my rims ...

And had a good price on a set of rubber ie f1's 235-35-19s at ?625

but not sure if i should

Go to 18's and get some of my comfort back ......

As theres a few places selling rims and tyres at nearly the same price but obviously the tyres wont be as good

dont get me wrong i realy like my wheels .....and dont mind spending them money on the rubber

but i like the look of 18's RS6 ......LOL

god what to do lol

what would you lot do ......................

thats a tough one jas but having not had a run in a car on 19's i dont think you'll find that much diff in 18's. and anyway your wheels are great mate. dont blame ya for thinking boutit tho at 625 for 4 tyres ouch!

Jason.. are you seriously almost through those already ? They are PZero Rosso's aren't they ? Thought Pirelli's were quite hard wearing but it was only last summer you got em on wasn't it ?

As said already, I don't think you'll notice much difference in going from 18's to 19's. Lee had RS6 18's and Glen had them in 19". Looked the tits !

Looked the what ? I wrote "looked the breasts beginning with T" !

Ok...not an easy one but heres a possible solution:

Buy the Rs6's, Drive with them for a while. Find out if you really want to go back to 18's because this is the only way to really know is actually have them on the car.

And if you don't like them after say 2 months, flog the wheels, & top up the balance & go back to your 19's. Or even trying out a lower priced tyre?

Hope that eases the decision making..

Hey Nosaj,

Multipy answer post will answer all ....

marc

that might be an idea .....but i dont mind paying 625 as thats not a bad price even if i went to expensive place they would be around 750 ish and thats not bad for that type of rubber lol

dan

yer i did only get them last summer but they wasnt new when i got them and had some wear on them anyway they was nearly new ....

and ive done a good 12k may be even more on them and what ya got to remember i like a country lane blast ....hence tyres have been pushed to the limits ....i supose if i was to drive a little slower they may of lasted a bit longer lol

LoEnuff

yer i might do that that way i can tell .will have to see as cars in dealers at mo geting its fuel gauge sorted i think

so when i get it back a trip to the wheel dealers may be called for

Pricey

thats a bloody good price for them thats nearly 200 notes cheaper than ive seen , shame u got to sort other bits out first will you end up getting them thou

Tom

Thats a very good price for "Formula One" that shop is normally over priced.

@ Jason "F1" is just up the road from Chris's house, not far from where we were last night when the gritting lorry went past, with a full discharge..LOL...[:D]

I would choose Plan B and get RS007 alloys & tyres, and make your car look like this:

I would go with the RS007's they are a really nice wheel and look so much better than the RS4's and RS6's IMO!!

They deifnitely look better than the RS6's in my humble little opinion [:)]

If you do end up coming over here to F1s (why didn't you say it was in Brands you daft sod!) give me a bell and i'll pop up [:)]

PS - assuming gI'm around !
