    HI Guys,

    I currently have 17" OZ SuperTurismos on my Cupra,

    I bought the car with them on so i have known no different,

    Would anyone advise against going back to standard MK3 Wheels (Providing i can obtain)

    I think they look alright and the extra profile should make for a smoother drive?

    What do used SuperTs sell for these days? - they are over 1000 new????

    I think when I weight my standards with old tyres on they came to about 17/18kgs a wheel. I replaced them with my 17 rotas with fresh tyres that weight pretty much the same.

    Thanks Kyle!

    I have found a set of STD MK3 Cupra Wheels wheels and they are being delivered tomorrow!

    Im somewhat looking forward to smoother ride comfort after reading some peoples views on 17" Low profile tyred wheels :)

    17's on the cupra are too much.

    you will like the 16's ride, i used 205/45/16's on my cupra wheels and got a firm but comfortable ride :)

    Thanks Adam, I think ill prefer it very much!

    I bought the car with them on so i thought it was just normal and the last cupra i had driven was my Uncles standard one in 2009.

    I noticed a few others ahve expressed there dislike to 17" wheels on the MK3 cupra.

    Im gonna spray them black too as that seems quite tasty :)

    Wheels arrived Wednesday! 2 need new rubber which is being done this weekend.

    The wheels are good condition seeing as they are 10 years old!

    Then the OZ's are going on eBay!

    I am going to force myself to get out and snap some pics this weekend to build a Readers Ride Thread for my car as its been too long not showing my pride and joy!

    Please dont expect a Cupra super machine, She is fairly standard!

    no worries about the condition of ther car.

    If we all had money like Phil / Badger then nothing would be 'special'
    i certainly dont have that amount of cash :(

    :)

    I have pics of the day i bought it, so ill get them up and show the changes made over the year.

    I always think to myself "I haven't done much" but i think when i get listing, i probably have.

    Though as said - not as much as many others.
