    Looking into the new wheels and tyres on the Type-R and it has the 9j x 20 5x120 PCD pattern, which is the same as BMW...:jumpup: so lots of wheel choice available. I also only found 1 x set of winter tyres in the standard size of 245x30x20 :Whistle: at £528.20 per tyre (Pirelli Winter).
    so this means looking for a set of 19" wheels plus tyres??

    @andy83 still listing as "early November" at least I don't have to get a spare set of 19" wheels + winter tyres, so thats a relief. can't get off the estate in Buxton when the snow comes due to the wind chill.

    will have to see, I think there will be a massive selection of tuning parts including wheels because its being sold in the good old USA for the first time...what i would like to see is a software upgrade that can separate the 3 settings Comfort/sport/R plus. At the moment you can't select different suspension and ECU maps and steering.
