Go on Andy. Buy it swap the wheels and flog it on for more than you paid for it. That's how I started 37 years ago..

Speculate to accumulate. You would be daft to miss out on the chance of some very rare Alloys that fit a Hi-Jet. You'll be kicking yourself if you don't go for it.

Bought it!

Got it for £285....drove it home with a big smile. Drives really well....you wouldn't understand it only has an 850 engine. 75-80mph all the way and no more noise than loads of cars I've owned. Haven't told the wife I've bought it as I'd be in big trouble so it's hiding up the road. Will sneak it into the garage tomorrow.

The alloys are not that pretty and are R12s!.

Tempted to plasdip them black. What do you think?

Same size as the 850 Move Plus then. You can get 165/60/12 tyres. I had a set on my Red Pickup. Only thing is the rolling circumference is less than the Hi-Jet 155/70/12 so speedo reads faster.

But it lowers the gearing ratio, giving you a noticeable increase in acceleration, which I enjoyed and obviously improves the handling too.

Finally got around to swapping over these alloys today. Took one off, cleaned it up, sprayed it and fitted it on the Hijet...and....it looks daft Mad

They're tiny!

So I can't get R70'son these rims then? The acceleration is already pretty amazing so I'm not after that. Really looking for something that looks a bit more meaty than these. I'll have to get the hub painted up as well...looks a mess.

Guess I've answered my own question....need to get the same size tyres on the new wheels then

So the rim itself is that much smaller...that's the answer. Don't know what to do now. Guess at least I should swap over the wheels from the Cuore and get it sold then keep my eyes open for something better for the Hijet.

Rim is the same size Andy, you need bigger tyres, 165/70 is a fair bit taller than 145/70, overall diameter will be the same as 155/80 standard tyres. Put the Hijet tyres on the alloys Smile

You can get fatter, but the rim is a finite width(and fatter is waaaay more expensive rubber)

The van's in mid air? Smile
