Re: It's that time to change tyres £1000

Which tyre type is best for you?

Are you pleased to have the mobility of a deflated runcrap for getting your kids home (or whatever), or are happy to sacrifice that for a puncture repair kit and more comfort+grip?

Horses for courses....

Re: Matt Finish Wheels

Thanks Marco I was originally trying to keep the staggered layout to maintain the balance but 7.5" for the fronts was proving difficult hence looking at 8"/8.5" F/R which gives 19mm increase on ET40. Maybe I should consider a square setup to open up my options. Any comment on how a square setup aff...

Re: Matt Finish Wheels & Offsets

I didn't realise how difficult it is to buy wheels for this car. :( I'm happy to stick with current sizes (7.5" & 8") or go up 0.5" in width with subsequent increase in tyre widths but I’m advised that the absolute minimum rear offset should be 42. I've been through the stickies and notice a lot of...

Re: MPSS discontinued?

If you're not likely to be hitting the track, I'd be going for PS4 tyres personally. I'm going to try them next time around.

The 4S aren't being released in 18", per my last email from Michelin.

Re: Supplying your own oil for first service

If left to it's own devices, my motorway car asks for fresh oil every 24k. Elliott's was 28k, iirc.

Mine's in for a service currently (engine oil service, cabin microfilter, standard scope visual check + electronic SH Stamp) - £158 at Arden Maidstone supplying my own LL04.

Re: 18x8 et 40 All round with m3 LCA's

Depends on tyre choice, 245/35 at ET45 could foul the damper. ET42 is proven to clear.

Re: What wheels are these?

Tyres are technically the wrong diameters, too big. Should be 255/35 & 225/40 for an F20

Re: What wheels are these?

Stanced. Just means they'd poke out a little more than your stock wheels Stevei, same look as running thin wheel spacers.
