Wheel Size Options and Bulb Type
Hi, ok, sod it, im getting a recon engine in my 156, see failed head gasket topic...
i need/want new wheels though too, and im going for Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2, 17", Matt Black. i have a couple of options, which is best for the 156?
Option 1 is 7JX17 5X98 ET38 with 215/40ZR17 tyres.
Option 2 is 7.5JX17 5X98ET37 with 215/40ZR17 tyres. option 2 also states "58.1 C/B (DIRECT FIT)" whatever that means...
which is best? i would like the wider 7.5J really.
Also, what type of sidelight bulbs does the 156 take? i have bought a bulb set from eBay, which has come with 501 type sidelight bulbs, but they dont seem to want to fit (new smoked headlights so no in-car faffing). which ones do i use?
