G60 wheels

Right, thinking of putting some 15" steel g60s on my 88 scala. Firstly, will they fit ok? And secondly has anyone else done this and if so have you got some pics please? The other option is the gt2 wheels. What do you think?

Straight fit. You want 195/50 15 tyres to maintain roughly the right rolling radius. You can use 195/45 15 for a lower profile look - only advisable if your car is significantly lowered.

Here's my old Scala on G60s:

They look great! Haven't had or intend to lower the car. Thanks for the pic.

Here's mine on G60's with 195/50's fitted.

They are great if your keeping the right height standard but if your lowering you will definitely need something like 185/45 on the front as they rub a little.
