i gotta corsa b and i want to know whether i could fit 18's to it? my m8 told me they had to be below 7inches width to fit, is this true? i can get hold of a set of 18's for 500, was told they were 7.5 inches width. Is this ok or not?

what does the ofset have to be? does it ever matter with the engine size? i had a citroen saxo b4 and some wheels which fit most saxo's, dont fit the 1ltrs, etc.

millie miglia are perfect for fitting 18's to yourcar. I justgoy hold of 18" T12's 7x18 with an offset of45. Shouldnt have to much troubles fitting them on.

18's will need a bit of arch work to go on without rubbing, test them out first, but as a safe bet i'd go for 17's as they fit with the correct offset

and the t12 is a loverly wheel

honestly i would think 18's will be more hassle than there worth.

steering will be all over the place they'll slow ya down and they cant be good for yer suspension parts and i think what happened to Brad fincham prooves that.

but its to your taste.
