    It really depends what sort of look you are going for.

    Ollie gave a good list of wheels there, you could also go with a set of Oz wheels of some sort. But one thing, dont go any bigger than 16 inch wheels or you will spoil the handling/ride of the car.

    Had me some 8's and 9's D90's too which didn't make it on to the car with tyres.

    I quite like the idea of the gottie's from my readers ride thread on there too - would look just the job - or actually what about those on the cabby??

    (Running of to edition to see if they have sold)

    oh yeah i forgot that you had the d90's too :p

    yeah gotti's on the cabby = good

    i think 15's and 16's look good on mk2 ibiza's, any bigger doesn't look good, smaller might, but rarely done :)

    Dave,

    Are you thinking of the 'wide-arch' Copper 16V that was featured in either Max Power or Fast-car back in about 2000-2001 ?!? ;)
