Hi Guys,

 

Need to get rid of the 18" team dynamics off the car. They are far too big and beginning to really annoy me!

 

So my question is what the hell should i go for? There are so many out there i have hit a brick wall in deciding! Also thoughts on 17's or smaller maybe?

 

Cheers

Also too add,

 

Your thoughts on white alloys on the car. Works with the blue or not?

Hi Wiggsy, I recently downgraded my Alloys as I have Suspention Problems, I did have MONDEO ST200 17" Multi-Spokes fitted, I love them, nice profile for grip and they fill the arches nicely, I had them on 215/45/17 tyres but I needed 5mm Shims to help rubbing which they did slightly on full lock, 205's look stupid on them though !!!

As I mentioned above I have replaced them whith a set of Alloys you don't see often on an Escort, I now have COUGAR 16" Six Spokes, they suit the Escort realy well and you don't see them fitted very often as they usualy have 225/50/16 Tyres on which are too big for the poor old Escort, I was lucky, I found a set without tyres that were painted Black and had the 'COUGAR' name which is written on the Center Caps Filled and Smoothed over, I got a set of 4 New Nankangs (Cheapskate I know lol) which only cost me £120 for all 4 corners, Special Clearence offer on ebay with FREE Postage, there are lots of bargains to be had on ebay !!!

 

Anyway, as for the Alloys, I recon they look smart on a lowerd Mk6, nice alternative to the all so common MONDEO 16"s and would look fantastic on yours in White or Gun Metal Grey !!!
