This might be a dumb question, but i have started to like the interceptor look...

Now, there are heaps of sale in all sorts of condition, but what I would like to know. Is ultimately, what will handle better, 15x6 or 15x7 wheels?

I am not great with tyres and specs and everything, but i understand that you can probably fit the wider tyre on the 15x7, but ultimately which is better?

I currently have 17 inch wheels on my commodore, what should i expect? (never had ceptors before, hence total newb ceptor questions)

Comfort will improve putting smaller diameter wheels on. As for width I recently changed my 205 tires for 235 and wouldn't go back. Steering is a little bit heavier but the added traction is great, unless you like to spin them.

235 wouldnt work. 15x7 look better in my opinion because they have the extra lip. 15x6 looks like you can't afford rims. Max I would go is 225 though in saying that I noticed no difference besides the 225 was more expensive.

Come to think of it, do you think they would even suit my car?

Thoughts ?

like wraith said, the 15x7s have the extra lip. i think silver cepters with chrome dress rims, caps and nuts looks on pretty much any commodore. but thats just what i think.. everyone has their own tastes :smoking:
