Alloy wheels for manta B

Recommended Posts

Hi folks.

I intend to buy a set of alloys for my manta B shortly, and thought it might be no harm to put up a wanted post here first in case someone has a set I might like.  

Looking for 15", 16" or 17" alloys.  

Was thinking of going for some 16" borbet A's, 17" AZEV's OR dished BBS reps.

I would also be interested in some wide 15" revolution classics (not 6")

 

Thanks for looking

Hi Malcolm.  

Nice looking wheels, but not what I'm after. 

Thanks.

I'd be very wary of 195/45's on a 9 inch rim, it's one hell of a stretch....

Not safe & looks ridiculous

Lovely looking wheels. But is 9" not a bit wide for the front of a manta?

I would have thought a 9" wheel on the rear may need a bit of arch rolling

Yes I too like the look of the wheels just don't like the stretch tyres.

Can't be sure but I'd say that dolphin grey one has 9's on the back and 7.5's on the front which will fit without arch rolling and the right size tyres as long as your car isn't too low....

I agree with them sizes Biff,with that amount of dish on the rears they are 9's for sure perfect staggered combo for the manta and look the dogs wotsits.:D

I know one thing,i would not pay any more than £400 quid for 2nd hand Borbet A's when you can buy them new for £650:blink: (cheers mantaman)

 Wonder what those Borbet wheels would look like if the centers were painted body colour or a metalic grey ? (leaving the silver rim)

I think they are Steffan BCW

Your right peter.  

Had a quick search on eBay and I think they. only come in 14" diameter. 

I need a minimum of 15" to get over the calipers :(
