After trial and error with a local Discount Tire store - 2 sets of the WRONG size hub centric wheels, 3 sets of tires, I had enough and decided to go through theTire Rack instead. I ordered some Mille Miglia 5 spoke 17" rims and Yoko A-520's 235/40/ZR17 for my 97 1.9. The staff seemed quite knowledgable after I explained the problems I have had. When they arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they were PERFECT fitment in relation to the hub bore - exactly as on the stock wheels. The other sets from Discount were off by as much as 1/4 inch"!!. As an added bonus, I had ordered the TECHROME finish, which I was assuming was just shiny silver paint. Let me tell you it is gorgeous! If I had not been told it was paint I would never have believed it. I t mimics the look of polished aluminum to a nearly chrome-like finish. They ride perfectly with no steering wheel shake as on the other wheels. All in all, I was extremely satisfied with my Tire rack experience. Its amazing that 1 toll free phonecall took care of what at least 8 visits to Discount Tire and countless hours of aggravation could not. Thumbs up to Tire Rack - If you are considering aftermarket wheels or tires, they are the place to go.
