Just spent some extra cash
#1
Its that time of year for switching from Winter tyres back to normal ones. I was looking around for prices and found outs that for about £150 more than I was being quoted for tyres, I could get some alloys fitted with the same tyres from wheelbasealloys.com. Big Grin
I did look at 16" instead, but they seem to be quite a jump up in price, so I've stuck with 15". Gone for MSW 19 with Hankook Kinergy tyres.
Now to find the space in the loft for the winter wheels.

That is actually quite a bargain to be honest with you, and if the picture is indicative of what it is going to look like I think you made yourself a wise investment. Looking good, when you actually have them installed make sure that you send us a picture would you?

Put them on this evening, but it was too dark to get a picture by the time I finished. They do look decent. The clearance is a bit tight on the rear calipers. So much so that one of the balancing weights fouled the caliper.
They came with spacers and a full set of security bolts (which I did pay an extra tenner for). There were actually and extra set of security bolts and two full sets of normal bolts. There were some little plastic inserts which I assumed were to stop the spacers seizing onto the hubs. Seemed to fit anyway.

I'll try and get some pictures tomorrow morning before it goes out on the road and ends up filthy. ;-)

If anyone is interested, I've been given a code for £25 off. Enter REF25 on the wheelbasealloys.com website. Based in Oldham for anyone who's local.

Here's some pics. The top one shows how close the balance weights are to the caliper. there was an extra one stuck on top of those, which caught on the caliper.

The plastic spacers I can only assume are spigot rings, they are essential in this application, they adapt the centre bore from being whatever generic bore the wheels are to being Citroen specific. Without them the wheels will not centre on the hubs.
