Default Vtr alloys 14"?

Are ALL vtr alloys 14" or are some 15"?

I'm only interested in the vtr alloys not the vts. Reason is I have 14" on my flat arch and want to avoid lowering it, was thinking some standard vtr alloys wouldn't look much different (if they were 14") but would make the car handle slightly better?

Anyhelp? Thanks

R rims run wider tyres than the stock steels on a flat arch, so you will have more rubber in contact with the road!

I got R wheels on my flatty, running 185 at the front and 165 (steel wheel tyre size) on the rear, means arches wont rub if people in the rear or if its lowered. dnt know if anyone else has done this. Just saves cutting the arch lips
