Alloy Wheels for 307CC

Post by siw1800 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 10:09 am

Hi Guys,

I am looking for a new set of alloys for my 58 plate 307cc.

Loads of questions!

Anyone recommend and good/bad places to source them from?
Are Woolf Race wheels still a good make?
Are polished surfaces going to be as hard to keep as I imagine?
What are the pros and cons of using spacers?

I have found some that the dealers say fit, 17" Wolf Race Assassin. I wondered about the gun metal with polished tips but thought about it when I heard the polished tips are lacquered. I can't help thinking they will need re lacquering frequently to stop them looking a mess.

The dealer says they will fit the 307 with a kit, longer studs and something else, but others seem to think it may need spacers. Years ago they were just loose and you had to try to centralise them as you fitted the wheels, also, I seem to remember insurance companies not liking spacers.

I have looked at many different wheels but find it hard to find the line of not boring not to blingy. I am not one to polish cars and wheels weekly so something quiet simple to clean is high on my list of priorities. The Assassin is different with some character but not too many spokes or difficult edges to clean and seems very very cheap for such a nice looking wheel.

Any/all advice gratefully accepted.

Thanks in advance.

Simon

Most after market wheels require a "fitting kit" which normally has some form of spigot ring or Hub centric spacer.
