    Default Help on new wheels (pro race 1.2 vs bk999)

    Hi guys, think my first mod is gunna be wheels. I have seen kev's black vectra with pro race 1.2 in black and love it, think it looks real mean.

    Only thing i have holding me back is do black alloys look like steel wheels from a glance and when moving?

    I am torn between getting the pro race 1.2 in black 18" or getting the bk999s and refurbing them in black/gunmetal.

    What do you think, i like the idea of the team dynamics cos they're a lighter wheel but the bk999's would be different

    hmmmm..... all help appreciated thanks

    Bk999's, I think they'd look great in a dark/gunmetal colour. I'm not a fan of black alloys on any colour car, but thats my opinion LOL.

    The Pro Race is lighter, so should improve handling by lowering the unsprung weight.
