what wheels?

Postby wolfie » Sun May 18, 2014 5:59 pm

whilst swearing at a brake caliper earlier I noticed some nice alloys on a Fiat over the road and it got me thinking. At the moment I've got some 14" alloys on my midas which give it phenomenal grip but very heavy steering and occasional tram lining.

What wheels do all of you have? I thought a list of what people use might help others if they're looking for new ones (as I might) and what size tyres do you use?

P.s can anyone remember the factory offset, ET etc?

The standard C-dimension of the Revolution RFX wheels was 115 mm. With 13" standard Metro style wheels having a C-dimension of 130 mm. ET always has me confused, being so difficult to measure.

By C-dimension, I assume you mean the offset?
Is there a standard method of classifying wheel dimensions?

It's the measurement from the hub face to a flat edge placed across the edge of the wheel.

Thanks Stuart, the C-dimension is what I THOUGHT was called the offset.

You learn something every day...
