hello and 17" wheels

I've been a guest for a while and read all your tips with interest. I've now joined up and was wondering of some mods to my 2.0 156 it's a 51 plate. Can i fit 17" wheels ? with which tyres ?, should i get it lowered ? which kit is best ? if you are too fast over the bumps it already bottoms out ? should i fit stiffer suspension ? what would you do, i really like the look of the ones on here that are lowered or have bigger wheels, be interested in your comments. Also do those induction kits work and how does the computer / airflow thingy get on with such things, do they just make more noise, should i bother ? I'd love to here your experiences and ideas on such matters cheers alex

Re: hello and 17" wheels

Heya alex, welcome to AO its good here!

a good way to get some question s answered is to do a search of previous threads work out a bit about what you think and then ask every one what they think.
i just had some 17' alfa sports put on today and they fit really well... very snug so any bigger i think may be a problem i have 215/45/17.
Tyres are popular on here so do a good search and you should find out that no probs.
good luck!!

lower and stiffer is good, but depends on what you do wih your car.

for me, bmc is not worth the cost
