I've just had four 215/40/17's fitted to my puma at a cost of £268 fully fitted. Was cheaper than I could get them supplied only online. I got mine from North Eastern Tires and Exhausts in York.

They told me that all wheels were buckled, one badly :( Managed to source four brand new Racing Puma alloys for £375 delivered so think I will have to invest!!!

    So a lesson learned: The internet is not always the best and cost effective way to shop  ::)

    Thanks very much  :thumb: has anyone changed the profile of the Tyres i.e 35 or 45 instead of 40? Im just curious that's all.

    you'd need to get the car re-speedoed. Hassle

    He's on 18's. Theres no way all those SS cars' speedos have been recalibrated!

    Demon tweeks had them again cant remember the price but was less than i expected for 888's. you'll have to upgrade from standard suspension to use 888's though.

    more likely to be £1663 after you get goodenough suspension for them.
