Title: Wheel suggestions - PLEASE HELP.
Post by: ashley_r_84 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.

Ashley

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.

Looks like its A500 fitment though?

Ignore me.....Just found them for the punto :thumb:

Novitec show them on the tricked out Punto Evo they do, I assume all Punto Evos are 4x100, they are also available on alfisti.net for Mito are they 4x100 or 4x98?

:idea:

Just replace the bent esseesse wheel and get 'em coloured, it's a good wheel.

Take a nice holiday with the change  ;D

I considered that but its £200 ish for the new wheel and then i'd need the others re-furbed. Almost impossible to get an exact match so all 4 would need to be done. So straight off i'm at £600 at least :thumbd:
I'd rather spend a little extra and have a summer set and a winter set :thumb:
