Well, I finally bit the bullet and found a nice set of 15" wheels for the old girl. They were on ebay, fully refurbished with a set of virtually brand new winter tyres fitted to them. Got them for a good price too, which was nice.
They're Wolfrace alloys, 15" x 6.5" ET35 so fit quite well I think. I like them a lot, but don't enjoy cleaning them as much as the old alloys as they're spokey fookers! The car definitely handles and accelerates better with these on and I was shocked to see that these tyres were about 1" smaller O.D. than the old tyres!

Anyway everyone like pictures so here's a couple:

old wheels:



new wheels:




If anyone is interested in the old wheels+tyres give me a shout as they're now up for sale on Gumtree.

cheers for now,

mike

amazing how different an R looks with a wheel change .
I think I like the new look better.
I would clean those with brake clean lol or some of the wheel spray cleaner if feeling spendy .
15 or 16" on average daily road far better ride/handling.
only a few 17" rim designs look ok crammed in the R's tiny arches

I agree some 17s look good but 16 or 15 are a much better size and well suited. Hell if we go back to the early 2000's sqeeze some chrome 18's on it Laughing

lol, nothing more ugly than a R with 18" rims.
euro stretch tyres another rough de-tuning trend :-S
Nice to have old sensible men as R owners theses days :-D
