To allow me to swap wheels.

Very different to what I have looked at for some time, but the rears with specific and correct offset are better and not odd looking like the same 285 tyre on a 315 rim did. Still unsure about a Space Grey car and Orbit Grey wheels but so be it for the foreseeable future.

A wash and wax for the summer wheels tomorrow then into storage.

Thanks guys :D

As ever, i look at options for the future, arguably silly at my age. An unforseen bonus of these wheels seems to be a much wider choice of tyres. Given they're one size all round there are the winters as fitted. There are ☆ approved summer options and even all seasons. I'll use these through this winter, swap next spring to the new identical tyres I have in readiness for late winter '23, and revert to summer wheels/tyres when appropriate. Beyond that we'll have to see.

The 10.5" rears do sit nicely in the arches with their increased offsets, and are better than using spacers to compensate for the 11" wheels. The ride on non run flats is of course is much nicer too 8)

Happy days at last.
