wanted=bx alloy wheels

Post by simonbx17 » Sun Feb 04, 2007 9:44 pm

i'm looking for bx alloy wheels either 16v alloys or the other style with lots of little squares not sure what there called, as my bx doesn't have power steering and the peugeot alloys are making the steering abit heavy.

regards

GTi or 16v alloys won't make an ounce of difference to the steering.

The thinner they are, the lighter they are. So ideally you want steelies or the metrics/lookalike metrics for lighter steering.
