Anyone seen the wheel deal on the Trent Saab Page?

4 x Saab Ronal alloys £250 (+ VAT of course)

http://www.trentsaab.co.uk/wheel.html

These are proper "old skool" in my eyes and I really want some. (dont like my Aero wheels ..sorry)

They only advertise 15" and my car runs 16" but the genuine Saab Ronals were I think 7" wide which is .5" wider than the 16x 6.5" aero wheels.

So basically everyone wants to "Step Up" in diameter for looks and ??? what, handling?

I need to know can you "step back" or downsize your wheel diameter, what do you lose? and can this be regained with the .5" width gain?

Obviously I'd need to run a higher profile but you can still get top line tyres in 60 section.

Everything 15" is also cheaper than the 16" equivalent when it comes to tyres too.

Cheers
