best size wheels? 13"or 14"?

hi all,

just bought a k10 as a daily to save me some petrol moneys, wasnt ment to be modding it but i cant help myself haha

car is mint, 92 plate and only done 40k miles :) il get pics up when iv picked it up this weekend.

anyway , iv been looking at wheels and was just wondering what do you all reccomend size wise? 13 or 14 inch?

best offset? etc i want a nice flush fit although i wouldnt be bothered if they stuck out a bit. just dont want to have do to massive amounts of arch work really.

thanks in advance, Tom

hi tom :)
k11 wheels are 13 or 14 x 5 et45, i think k10 are similar offset, so most go for about et20 for a flush fit
 
Stick with 13's mate, as even jumping up just 1 inch to a 14 will cause rubbing problems unless you shod them with 50 profile or less tyres, which are hard to find in a 14 inch wheel, and very expensive!!

14's can be fitted without any issue unless you're stupidly slammed
 
mines really slammed. i think it is anyways. i wish i had 14s as 13s look too small in the arch, imo!!! 15s are way too big and look roller skate style.
 
on 13s

slightly higher rideheight but imo 14s would look better and i would be fully flush :DD
