    Default New wheels.

    Evening all, and a big hello to all that may remember me, hopefully someone will, lol.
    Anyway, I know I donít get on here much now a days, but I just thought Iíd put a quick update on.
    I finely got tired on the ride quality on the 19ís, they are fine on a good road, but sadly what passes for roads round here are more and more starting to resemble Afghan goat trails after recent bombing raids.
    Anyway, got myself some nice comfy 17ís, so as much as I still love them, its goodbye snowflakes.

    Before;


    And after, much comfier.




    Not as cool though, lol.

    Hello m8, I still lurk around on here from time to time, not had a lot to say lately though, lol.
    I had the wheels refurbed again, and they are the same colour I had my snowflakes done in so it kind of helps to hind the change a bit, lol.
    I can’t help thinking it looks odd now, with way to much rubber under the wheel, lol, but it is so much better every time a wheel disappears down one of those pot holes, it doesn't sound like the dash is about to fall out any more, lol.
    The wheels where not new when I got them, and they are no longer made as the manufacturer ceased trading some time ago, they are Masitaly VT7's.

    Cheers m8 , I've always been partial to snowflakes, no matter how many people have them, I still like them, specially darkened ones.
    I do like the VT7's, they are very easy to clean and I think they have turned out well, and suit the car well enough, but I still like the snowflakes more, lol.
    Just very happy to have some extra rubber under me, that extra inch makes all the difference !

    I had them resprayed, same colour I had my snowflakes done in.
    Yes itís because I am lazy, I hate cleaning the car, and this colour hides the brake dust so well, lol.
