    Default What to do with it?

    Few of you may of noticed quiet a few posts regarding alloy wheels lately from moi.

    Question i know ask is, what should i do.

    Car is lowered 45mm, has an irmscher grille and looks nice as it is,
    I personally think the alloys style looks super but the size lets them down a bit
    Would you buy alloys or would you leave it as it is considering it doesnt look that bad as it stands?




    Im in a pickle as what to do, i dont want it to look chavved up

    Thats the way to go, £499 for a set you can't go wrong.

    See Ian c car for an idea of the look, bear in mind his are 20's though.

    Gregg, I had the self same dilemma 3 months ago, Do i, DOnt i, My mates got p*ssed off with emails of different wheels asking their opinions on them. As i said before, definately put wheels on it, But just take your time until you find "The Ones" you want. I must have pondered over 200 or more sets of rims before deciding on what i have now, and i'm glad i did, as i wouldnt change them for anything else.

    I dont know if its an optical illusion, but when I had my car lowered on 19" wheels it looks 'higher' than when its got 18" wheels or 17" wheels

    What I mean is the car looks lower with smaller wheels !! ... even though it stays around the same height off the ground.

    I personally prefer 18" rims. They are big enough to show the car off and are a more comfortable ride including cost/performance benefits
