    Default Change of Snowies

    Well last year I painted my snowies black, put them on the car and I weren't sure about them knowing it was a mistake painting them. I tried to warm to them but couldn't. So this weekend my mate sold his zafira Gsi n bought an 06 silver vectra Sri 150 cdti. Before he sold his zaf he took his 19" snowies off.
    Turns up outside my house with his new car tells me his plans for black snowies n grille on it.... "Hold up, I might just save you some time here."
    So a quick swap between mates n I have a nice vectra again that I like.

    That's hugely better. The obsession with black wheels is totally list on me, particularly when it's standard wheels that have been painted.

    The black snowies have 235/35/19 tyres on. The silver have 215/35/19, they have a slight stretch but look well for it.
