    Question Help me decide

    Now all my "planned" holidays are out of the way, i'm going to look for a set of 19" alloys.

    There are 2 sets i've got in mind which are........
    Vx snowflakes ( liking these more and more and after seeing the pics of PIMM's new wheels, ooooooooh !)
    and
    Mania Vortex R's ( as fitted to big Phil's car, a bu66er to clean but look superb ).

    Which of these should i go for ?

    Or do you know of any others i should consider ?

    Ed, the fishing was a nightmare !
    I only caught 1, that only went 17lb (and was on friday evening when we were starting to pack up !!!)
    My mate managed a good one weighing in at 46lb 8oz. Yep, they started to feed as we were coming home . BARSTEWARDS
    The fish had just spawned as we got there (air temp. was 35c) so eating was the last thing on their minds ! Got to top up my suntan though Ed .

    Can onyone tell me the price of the snowflakes ? I hear they'd be about £1200 without tyres . Any discounts ?
    Big Phil's come in at £1150 with Avon ZZ3 tyres.

    See where i'm coming from ?

    There is a set of Snowflakes on ebay at the moment, which need a refurb in an ideal world, the bidding is at £750 at the minute.

    I would go for Snowflakes everytime, looks the best of any wheel i have seen on a Vectra, although Inovit Spin's do run them a close second IMO!

    If you have loads of time on your hands for cleaning go for big phil's type wheel. But a very smart wise move would be the snowflakes.
    If only i had that sort of cash. I'd have snowflakes.
