Thinking of offloading the 20s and dropping down to 19s or 18s.
Which will be more usable and a smoother ride.

spotted these.




At the mo the price is nearer 1.5k than 1k, but hope to work on that.

I dont reckon I can find nicer than my 20s, but cant be doing with new front tyres every 6 months.And if they crack again I will be stuffed.

Rims wink

Super low profile tyres on big wheels offer very little cushioning over bumps and thus the rims crack as they take a big hit frown

Don't think they suit a modern car.
You should get it done with and get some of these:
