I will be needing some alloy wheels later on, any suggestions. When i bought the car it only came with a set of steel rims with wintertyres. I see that there are some 17" to fit the car on ebay. I have been looking at some from DP motor in the uk. Any suggestions and experience regarding wheels are welcomed.

There has been a while and to many other projects has been steeling my time, but a am still here. I want to give Razkin here at the forum a big thanks for helping me getting a new brake vacum pump and a new camchaft biggrin
Finally the engine is coming together and i have a lots of other bits ready. Hope i am able to keep up good speed and the plan is to have engine/trans back in the car shortly.

Anyone having some comments regarding wheeels and tyres. I am looking at Speedline Turini alloys and tyres. I am thinking of running 16" and 205-45-16 or even 195-50-16, rather then 17" 205-40-17.
I want some rubber between the wheels and the road to maintaine good road performance. I have even not driven the car without winter tyres so if you have any suggestions what to choose i will apriciate some feedback.

205/45R16 is the perfect size for the ZX. Rimms are difficult to choose, I would say go lightweight. Oz ultra leggera/Team Dynamic Pro Race
