Is this really reasonable to do ?, ive ordered a 60mm kit and ive only got 14" alloys would i get away with putting it on for the time being till i get some 15's or 16's ? My 14's are running 60 profile tyres i thinks maybe 65.

Pics !!???!!

That doesnt look that too over the top, looks alright really, might keep the 5 spokes 14 inchers just keep em nice and shiney

Probs will have to avoid speedbumps tho, there is only one road round here that has em anyways

I said that because softstars are always refered to as the new speedlines but speedlines were never that great ne ways, cav gsi's a bit too thick spoked for me
