Re: Which wheels are better 15 or 16

15... 16... 17...

When I first got mine, I liked the wheels, then I saw the 16's and thought they were gorgeous.

The 16's on the red Sport would be my choice of the options available, but will see when we change the rubber on the 17's today

Sorry, just my humble opinion but all those wheels look too fussy

Hi Andy

The 420's are the 16'' 5 O-spokes, cant remember what the 433s are.

There was a delay on 420s but couldnt have been that bad as it didnt delay my order by much and now I am glad I stuck with my choice.

I test drove the 1.4 sport with 16"'s and it was noisy on the motorway so I gambled and ordered my 1.2 sport with 15" two tones and I'm glad I did. The sixteens look good though guess it's up to you.
