Which should I keep

My Civic Tourer has two sets of wheels. I had 18inch Hydrogen fitted when new and, for the winter, purchased a set of 16inch standard Honda wheels from Cox's.
I am now selling the car and wonder which would be best to sell separately.
Both sets are as new without marks and tyres are all in very good condition.
It is my intention to sell them on the forum and I would, of course follow the rules of the forum to the letter.
I would value opinion before I make the decision!

The 18 inch wheels will probably get a better price on here/ebay if they are the Honda OEM Hydrogen wheels

How did you find the comfort on the 18 inch alloys? I'm thinking of upgrading my 16 inche sets and going for one 17 inch with Michelin cross climates

Mick, when we got ours I borrowed the demo with the 18s fitted and the ride was very good. Big bonus is if you check on Cox Honda site you will see all the 18s are being sold off very cheap

What would you go for if you didn't want diamond cut wheels?

17" cobalts just bought a set from Gareth at holdcroft for 570 for the crz plus we have these on the tourer. Was very tempted with radiums but think cobalts look best with the shadow chrome finish plus 17" tyres give better kerb protection and are around 20 a corner cheaper. If you want a cheap good set look at my eBay link I posted tonight but you would need to arrange collection plus I don't think these are what your after.

Bigger alloys always sell easier and for better money

If your concerned about ride I can tell you for sure the ride is a little better in the CRZ with the Goodyears rather than the OEM Bridgestones but then again we all know Bridgestones run very hard tyre walls. As for the cross climates when I did research I basically noted that they did not excel in any area but was more a decent all rounder where as the Aysmetric 3 I can confirm are excellent in the wet and dry and where around 20-30 a corner cheaper.

Yes there right but like I said I do not think tree are worth the money as they do not excel in any area but are very expensive compared to others

What would you go for that would be good in colder weather? All year round?
