Steel wheels

The past couple of days Ive been thinking about getting a second set of wheels + tyres for track/airfield use to save some precious rubber off my road tyres.

Yesterday I was offered a set of four 172 Mk 1 alloys and tyres for £400. However, at the mo this is a bit out of my price range. Chatting to Stu yesterday he gave me an idea. As I now have a new set of Toyos on order for the standard Mk 2 172 wheels, if I could find some steel wheels to fit the contis that are coming off the car I would have an extremely cheap set of track wheels.

So, firstly is this a good idea? Does anyone know if you can get steel wheels that the 195/45 R 16 contis will slip onto? If so where from? Scrappy will do - its just finding the right car.



um.....i run steelies and i actually think they look frikkin FAB!!!!

mine are resprayed anthracite, or rather, ford graphite grey.

anyway, have a look in teh reault showrrom, the boots of the new laguna, meganes etc etc

you can actually get he centres to glow red, then when you turn a corner, itll bend right under the car!
