    Default My latest spare wheels - not Snowflakes , XP2s but Pentas

    The story goes like this , I bought a set of snowflakes about a month ago just to put on my 2 cars as I refurbished the XP2s on both of them. Yes I know these are not snowflakes.

    Back to the story , a member on here decided he didnt like his XP2s so we arranged a swap and I took his Xp2s and he took my snowflakes. Anyway fast forward 2 weeks and another guy from the forum popper round to see me and insisted he needed my newly aquired XP2s that had not even managed to get on to my car. Thats 2 sets of wheels that didnt managed to get on to either of my cars. So anyway deal was done and I got a set of battered Pentas.

    So I decided I may as well tidy them up a bit , so below is the results , in BMW anthracite.

    Comments welcome good or bad , I know I need to dress the tyres and tidy the insides but that will be a job for next weekend , when they go on the car.

    I love Penta's if you ever get rid then please let me know! I have just acquired some facelift SRI wheels to have as a spare set and will be refurbing them before they go on the motor, but I think my fave wheels are Penta's or XP2's!

    done a great job, nice and glossy. I always worry about spraying wheels with the tyres on, surely better if removed?
