Where can i get some second hand 13" or 14" alloys with tyres in fairly good condition?

Haven't got a vast amount of money so.......

Places like ebay seem to require mucho postage fees or local pickup. Pickup is usually impossible as they are generally too far away.

Maybe i should just stick with my 13" steel ones..... The tyres are still good on them, my mates recon its a waste.

corsa_lad: sorry was thinking more around 150 tops.

I also don;t want to go too big because i think i'll loose torque.

Take my old 15s (with 195/45 tyres) off my hands for a few notes.

Either pay for carriage or come and collect

Got me thinking now......

luca2020: i have a 1.2 16v
I'm studying mechanical engineering so i have a tendancy to think about things too much such as power and torque... The difference might not even be noticable, you are right.

You wont loose power and torque, as they are in the engine and you aren't affecting that, what you loose is the efficient application of the power and torque through the wheels, it will still be there just not transfered to move the car quite as well.

But with 15's you wont really experience that problem, the over all size of the wheel will only be about 2-3mm different compared to your 13's as long as you get 195/45/R15 tyres.

Makarus: Don't argue with me!!

You WILL loose power and torque, when power is measured at the wheels......

Only messing m8
