I ahve a set if 17" 5 spoke raceline alloys, tyers in good condition and wheels do have kurb marks but in average condition.

Looking for a swap with Mondeo 16" 5 spoke alloys but must have low profile tyers (205/45/16 or maybe 205/50/16)

Shame we're so far away as im looking fror a change of wheels on mine, ive got the wider version of the mondeo alloys, 7j wide with 205/45R16 tyres, they've got bridgestone potenza tyres fitted, although the rears are worn low now, ill get some tread depths off my tyres tomorrow at work for you if you want so ya know? as I dont actually know the exact depths myself :) The alloys are in good condition, few minor kerb marks, bit of corrosion on the paint in places, nothing major.

 

Any better pics of yours? Tread depths? Tyre make? etc.. :)

ill get some pics up 2mrw and give estimate of tyres depths.

its snowing and dark right now.

 

They need to have pritty good tyres as im not after spending money.

 

will the wide change anything if ya car is dropped 60mill? will it rub?

 

 

 

 

Will consider Other 16" alloys but i do prefere the 16" gti (mondeo alloys)

Nope my car is lowered -60mm and my alloys dont rub at all really, the only reason my drivers rear tyre catches the arch slightly over big bumps is because my drivers rear arch lip has folded down due to rust pushing it down as its got between the arch skin, if the arch lip was where it should be it would not catch at all 100% :)

If you can swap your 17's for some nice 15's, i'll swap you the 15's for my 16's :P

 

You're after /50 or /45 profile tyres? Mine have both, lol 45's front and 50 rear (Eagle F1's)

 

 

ha, bloody hell this will be bit confuseing.

 

Good idea tho!

 

 

So if any1 wants a 3 way swap please post :D

well that makes it bit tricky,

 

wheels look good condition,

looks like all tyres need replaceing tho. :(

£160 for 4 tyres i carnt afford

 

are the 2 with 2-3 tread on 205/50?

 

1 is the other 1 the is 205/55 ran these on the rears of the car had the 205/50 on front.

if these are still on the car i'd change that a.s.a.p I got told never to use different size tyres on the same axle

 

 

they aint on his car there spare i think
