The thing is, you liked the red DRL's, but the implications you could have? You've done the right thing by removing the coloured film.

So what is the size of the wheel after all?
On their website, Bola states that the B6 is available either in 8 or 9J width.
Can you show us a pic what it looks like looking from the back or the front?

It looks as if they would be better suited to wider tyres RichTea, probably 235/40, but for now you'd better keep well away from kerbs :wink:
