*Sniff sniff* You guys are great!!

I know at the moment it will take a while to get to 1000 posts, but I just don't seem to have the time to get on the net at the moment, plus the work system has blocked AstinaGT from the computers, so I can't spend all day at work on the forum!!!!

im on 14s in firm belief that it's not the size of your wheels... but how you use them... and, becuse im cheap, how much you paid for the tyres

however if i were to buy bigger wheels... it would be straight to 16s

Now I'm into Tuna and not Rice, my previous 16 or 17" vote would now go to 14 and 15" rims. Hey, the money I save on rims goes towards phat nasty tyres with big chunky blocks and nice big grippy sidewalls that let me feel the road and not loose corner speed and traction by skipping over the bumps in the Touge. This is all very academic at the moment, as I don't have much avenue to put any of this into practical use for some reason...

Bugger all that, I want Eibachs again!

you go to something like a 215/35x18 ... it's what i had my prelude and it didn't bump or scrape anywhere ... if you can run 205/50x16s you should be fine with 215/35x18 buuuuuuuut you might want to check local rego laws to make sure you don't get reamed by the cops/RTA

215/35zr18 fit fine with any mods to a BA/BJ 323 astina. without any rubbing issues in regards to struts or wheels arch protectors.
