    Nice. I can already see bigger alloys are needed

    Hey !!

    I've just put new Pirellis on those rims lol.

    What size would suit, in your opinion?

    17" or 18" should look the go. Congratulations. How's the roof working, any leaks?

    Hi Davo (I presume),

    I took the dub for a run up to the big smoke a week ago in the midst of wild weather and driving rain - not a single leak.

    I couldn't believe my luck.

    How do wheels that big fit? Any mods required?

    shouldn't be any mods required, as long as you have the right size tyres to match....

    Do you reckon I'd need low profiles?

    So, if you want to change from the current rims to larger ones, then the tyre size has to go down correspondingly.

    Eg, if you have 15" rims, with 65 tyres, then if you go to 17" rims, you have to go down to 45 tyres..

    Here's an interesting chart..
