Hi all. Just got my new wheels fitted. Im over the moon with the result, its exactly what I was wanting!!

They're TSW 19x7j rims et25 fitted with 215 35 19 fullrun hp199 tyres. I might try them with my 25mm spacers at some point to make them have a 0 offset!!

But for now I will leave you with some pics. What does everyone think?

They make it look really low, some will love it, some dislike it, but it's all down to personal taste

Love the colour and look, but it's too low to the ground.

It detracts from the overall good look of the car, as it looks like you've knackered your suspension.

Loks good, have you noticed a drop in performance though with the heavier wheels than standard?

The pic makes the car look lower than it actually is. The car is parked facing down the driveway which levels out along the line just infront of the front wheels. Therefore the front bumper is nearer to the road than if it was parked on the flat. I will try get a pic of it on the flat put up soon.

As for the performance, its a 1.4 so it was never very quick before hand!! I havent noticed much difference if any though.

Only problem now is the car stopped working last night!!

Holy thread resurrection batman!

Just a quick question - anybody know what model these TSWs are?

Been toying with the idea of larger wheels for the Loeb at some stage in the near future and I like the look of these...

Time to fire up Photoshop perhaps...

19 inch? 35 section? I think you would be asking for trouble (punctures bent rims etc) especially with the way the roads are at the moment.

Is this the one?

Good point - I was thinking that 19s might be a step too far...

I like the standard wheels that are currently fitted - they're a nice design IMO, and I also think they give the appearance of looking a bit bigger than the Resolfens on the old Red Loeb.

In an ideal world I'd like the current wheels just a bit bigger to fill the arches a bit more!

Hmm, something to chew over...!

Good find - not quite, but close...

Well plenty of people have 18inch without problems, more of a compromise & still look good! I'm not a fan of wheels that look like they touch on every bump in the road.
Everytime I look at these aftermarket wheels, I think I need them, then I look at the Resolfens on the car & I think I don't!

Very true! Indeed, there is the aesthetics and performance to take into account...

It's strange, at some angles they look really good but others a bit small.

I'll probably end up sticking with the originals! Although if I do, perhaps some spacers just to push them out a little...

Again, when I look at pics of Nice Site (Lee)'s car with spacers, I think I should do that. Then I look at mine as standard and the way it sort of crouches... Well I like that too!

Your car has wheels which look aftermarket anyway, really nice looking in my opinion & definately would not change if I was you. There must be very few cars with those wheels around. They remind me of the Minilite style wheels I had on one of my 1275GTs in the early 80s (not a bad thing)
