147 wheels?

Got my new 147 today...Has 15's on it at the moment, they are nice, but dont quite fit the arches. Would like some genuine AR wheels, just a little bigger. Any suggestions and where do i get them from?

Ebay, look for genuine ones... or it's the main dealer I'm afraid!

Re: 147 wheels?

Hi Firthy..welcome to AO, congrats no yuor purchase!
Dont forget that even though 16's and 17's are bigger, the tyres are lower profile so the overall diameter stays pretty much the same.

So if you really want to fill the arches, you need to lower the car.

GTA italian wheels are replicas.

Try a PM to the AO Mod known as Squadrone Rosso, he bought some genuine AR 17's from a guy in Italy, loads cheaper than the genuine article in the UK
