    Default Snowflakes or VXR's??

    Hi. I want to upgrade my alloys on my 2.2Direct SRI.

    A few things....

    - 19" Snowflakes: Would I need to lower the car to prevent it looking like it's on stilts? I've also heard that they can crack with the state of the roads at the min?

    - VXr's: What size? Silver or Gun metal grey?

    Oh, and whilst I'm at it, what colour should I paint my calipers. Silver, blue, yellow, red???

    Your comments are appreciated, cheers!

    vxr's i think, a bit rarer than flakes. 19" red calipers IMO.
    See how it looks on standard sri suspension then make your mind up on how low to go if you don't like the way it sits.

    Vxr's.. snowies are too common. Plus 18's and drop it 15mm, still keep some of the "comfort"!!!
    Colour of wheels & calipers depend on the colour of your motor..

    keep your old wheels and tyres for winter running if you prefer. I have my old 17s on again due to the pot holes.. will go back to my 19" snowies this weekend though..

    Blue would go....

    Wheels would be nice in gunmetal for star silver, or a shiny silver for silver lightning.
    Personally i'd do the calipers yellow. But thats just me
