Let us first know what Tires size you like. You can also put the combination in a calculator https://tiresize.com/calculator/
205/60/14
6x14 offset +42
As OEM
Thomas, OEM fitment for the UK is
205/60/14
5.5 x 14 offset +40
(195/60/14 will work just as well, makes minimal difference to rolling radius and it's an easier size to find with a lot more choice).

Remember that in my opinion insurance company in UK need telling you have modified to 195's
There should be no problems, but if it emerges later that you have modified from standard........not worth the risk.

So I'm looking at getting these imported:

http://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/C ... 10278.html?

I was going to go with 14x7, but is that to wide for 205? Shall I go 14x6?

59.7 CB, +40 ET for all? They will weld whatever offset I ask for.

Tyres i was looking at Nankang ULTRA SPORT NS-2 205/60 R14 92H XL for all 4.

Cheers

I want to put modgies on my car. I haven't found anywhere in the UK that will do them, apart from the cragar ones but they don't come with the right offset.

The tyres I'm not so fussed about - I don't have anything against the chinese though.
