IIRC about a kilo lighter than stock. Staying with the oem tyres.

18's shouldn't fill the gap unless you fit the wrong tyres, which of course you could do with 17's too!

well what I meant is they suit the gap better, they may not literally fill the gap, but from a perspective view they will as there is more alloy.

if that makes sense? haha


It does for me anyway.

Nice one, more pics please....still haven't found any alloys I like yet except maybe these





but no idea how to get them. Can you feel the difference shaving off a kilo per corner?

Not yet.. it's been so wet and greasy this week that i've not really been able to benchmark the OEM wheels.. oh well, too late now!

18's would allow a slimmer more rigid tyre; keeping diameter much the same

There is tyre flex under hard cornering with the stock set up

Going to try some Tsw nurburgring 18 8s

i like 18's but i wouldnt really want any extra weight so it will be a careful choice for me .

edit to add theres to many to choose one style tho

You can get 18's that are lighter than the OEM wheels, however for 99% daily driving on British roads i'd prefer to retain the sidewall compliance for ultimate grip.
