    my new alloy wheels

    here are some pictures of my new aluline 15" alloy wheels and im wonder what tyres i should put on them any ideas
    also i need some wheel nuts as these are crappy also need to sort out the centre caps as im not putting a hex bolt to them so gonna counter sink the cap and get some alloy ones
    what do you guys think also guys with the tyres is there a good place to go for help with fitting them as not sure what size i need as i was told either side straight or stretched im thinking a little stretch what do you guys think

    They look nice. Where have you had them from? Wheel nuts? Don't you old ones fit?

    Is there a size on the tyres that are on the wheels you have at the moment and just need the width of the new rim if you could measure that will give you a good size to go for

    Shame that Jamie (Hot Hatch Corner) isn't round the corner from you. He would sort the lot out in minutes
