    Default Wheels choice? 2 options

    I know 100% i want to stick with OEM look for my Silver Sri.

    However, do i hold out for some 19" snowflakes as there does not ever seem to be an abundance of these wheels avalable, budgeting around £1k.
    Or
    Do i buy the VXR replica Alloys (18") which look OEM and are £600.

    Discuss or merely state option 1 or 2.

    Cheers fellas

    yeah the 19" VXR are an option too but again dont seem to pop up for sale often where as the 18's are readily available and brand new unmarked. only issue is i think with the 18's the car would need to be lowered whereas with 19's maybe not

    difficult decisions as i like both styles

    buy the 18'' replica's, then with the money you have left buy some spring's and lower the car 30mm, that will do the trick and be within your buget of a grand

    yeah thats what i am thinking, Love the snowflakes chunky apperance though, but they dont seem to come up often and are usually in need of a refurb.

    Overall size of the wheel is the same, so you'll have exactly the same clearance under your arches with either option.

    I would 100% go for the BK999 18's. Yukky snowflakes

    Sorry Paul your wrong Mate...

    18's on 225/40/18 Tyrs are smaller than 235/35/19's..... I spent ages deliberating over wheels and sizes, ad thats something that stood out for me.. 215/50/17 are the exact same size as a 235/35/19.
