i think they look stupid. on wide wheels they look ok but narrow wheels with even narrower tyres they look daft. it doesnt make your wheels look wide at all

yeahhh, so i'm going from a 195/45/15 tyre, to a 165/50/15 thus stretched tyres on a wider wheel.

I've seen a golf with the same width and wheel size as mine, and with 165/50's on it and the stretch didnt look massive, i still cant picture how big it would be on mine though.

Icy you've had some right gems for wheels

My mate had stretched tyres on his carrado, it failed the mot as the wheels stuck out, just a note you might want to consider, im not 100% on the laws, but i think theyve got to be properly under the arch, not stuck past it - feel free to correct me if im wrong
