Aup lads just a quick one.does anyone no of 19" wheels or even 20" wheels go on a blob ok i parked next to a classic yday and it this pic my wheels look tiny so im considering getting larger ones.

 Now i no black wheels naturally look smaller anyway but my 18" ones look like baby wheels on here.

Opinions please

Yep + 1 for any rim size over 18's making the drive worse .

As the smaller tyre wall size doesn't absorb the bumps or give you as much traction in the twisties.

I ran 18's for a week then switched back to 17's on my classic for the same reason.

If it's not broke .....upgrade it 😊

It depends on what's more important to you and what you want the car too do .

After all some take a perfectly good awd rally bred scooby and drop em on their bellies with massive camber and stretched tyres.

I don't wanna plan my journey around speed humps , think it looks terrible and would be too scared to push it in the corners in case a tyre popped off a rim [emoji23]

But hey variety is the spice of life and each to their own with cars and modding imo [emoji41]

Maybe you could look at getting your current 18's refurbed in a different colour to stop em looking so "lost in the arches "

I've got "polar black" rims on my silver classic, which (when clean ) reflects a lot more light to make the wheels stand out more [emoji6]

If it's not broke .....upgrade it 😊
