Help Wheels

Hi all,
Wheels are looking a bit tatty on my 156 JTS sportwagen veloce 04 plate, so I'm thinking about an upgrade. Can I squeeze 18's on, or am I being a bit too optimistic? Any help appreciated.

Re: Wheels

i had 18s on a 156 saloon. you just need to ensure the specs are suitable (width, offest). the wheels i had were 18x7.5" with +38mm offset. tyres were 225/40. fitted fine.

Re: Wheels

I have a JTS with 17s on and standrad profile tyres and the ride is much firmer than my 147 which had 16s. If it's not an issue for you then go for it, but being an old duffer at the wrong end of my thirties, I wouldn't have 18s on a car I have to drive every day.
All the best,
