19" Alloys & Tyres for sale / swap for 18" Wheels

Post by sjpsound » Mon Nov 12, 2018 4:16 pm

Hi All,

I have decided to change my wheels from 19" BiColour Alloys - would like to sell or would consider swap for 18" Alloys & Tyres

The alloys are in excellent condition as pictured - 2 are perfect, 2 have very minor marks (shown)

Removed from 9 month old 2018 Excellence with 9000 mike recorded.



PS I'm located in Shropshire

In the first instance, is that legal given that the model approval will be for the 19in wheels and tyres? Also, the reduced circumference will also result in your speedometer probably being outwith the legal tolerance. You should at least consider hanging on to your 19ins for when you need to get the car MOT’d

There's no such concept as "legal" - it's not illegal to change your wheels and tyres. It's a bit of a loophole the other way around - you can buy a car with smaller wheels so the emissions band is lower, then put bigger wheels on it after it's been registered.

The speedo will be fine - the tyre aspect ratio increases with smaller wheels so the rolling circumference remains within tolerance.

If you're looking to buy 18 alloys, i've got a set of standard 18" FR wheels that came with my car, which i'm looking to sell.

They were taken off the car the day i picked it up so only have a few miles on the rubber and are in great condition. Let me know if you're interested and i'll get pics of them.

I would assume that if the wheel and tyre size matches any option quoted in the manufactures specs would be alright. For example, fitting 20" wheels would not. Illegality isnt the issue, it would be more a question of the MOT or of course insurance..

Here in Spain, the car documents include a "Technical Specification" which also acts as the document which is stamped when the car is tested. It lists the specification of the actual car, but where there are options, typically tyre size, it shows all the options.
