Wheel suggestions - PLEASE HELP.
« on: September 30, 2011, 12:40:02 pm »
Good afternoon all.

I'm in desperate need of a new set of alloys for the SS and i need some help chppsing.

I've got a couple of choices in mind but i'm hoping some of you can throw some wildcards into the ring.

I either want Matt black or White and i'm pretty sure I want to stick with 18's.

PLEASE HELP.

    Couple of choices so far include - 

    Speedline Turini.
    Sparco assetto gara - don't really want to copy Oli, although they are really nice wheels.

    I just like the looks of that wheel on a smaller hatch!

    You just after the looks?
    If I were you, I would also look into the weight of them... (but that is just me :D )

    I don't mind you getting the same as me! :)

    Yours wouldn't be the same anyway because mine are 17's  :thumb:

    p.s they're pretty light too!

    Just to throw another in aswell. The Compomotive MO1881. They have offered a pretty big discount and believe I should be able to squeeze in an offset of ET35 to make it look a little more aggressive :thumb:

    Not keen on those Mito alloys sorry Sandys.

    I do like pretty much all the OZ alloys.
    As Corsa said though i think the Leggenda looks better on the 500 as its a lot smaller.

    They are mainly for looks but always keen to lose a small amount of weight where possible :thumb:
    I believe the Compomotive wheels are pretty lightweight :thumb:

    I've pretty much narrowed it down to 3 choices now so it may well get to the Sparco's :thumb:
    Was looking at the pics of yours again earlier and they are pretty damn nice tbh.
