this, however, I think looks 100 times better

I like your dark grey alloys .... yes they could be bigger - but I like the colour

20s as standard are a sign of the times but cost of tyres starts to make ownership costs silly. Lad at work has 20s on his A5 and he pays £800 for a set of tyres. Still that pales in comparison to the guy with the X6 who pays almost £500 a corner.

you think?...i think the other ones look a lot classier.....considering this is supposed to be a hot coupe, i think the wheels are very understated.

my brothers M2 has ridiculous deep 19's, they look fantastic, but then they sit wide under flared arches, which obviously being the full fat M, they should.

dunno, really a bit 'meh' about them, but probably wont end up changing

Will Spot's wheels fit LK's car? Might be worth trying in order to see how they look.

They can partake in some trouser jousting at the same time....

I have the solution. Save a few £££s and just don't wash your wheels for a while to achieve the 'dusky shadow' look.

I'm with Mogs, go red!
Be bold.

Black wheels can look good on some cars. I think my car would look good on Black 18s.

Well, I think I am going’s Antracite ... and not diamond cut .... just one nice, overall finish .... Black isn’t for me ... although they do say you’ll Never go back ‘!!!!

Silver is just that little bit too safe ... and anthracite for me treads the line between the 2.

THAT'S coz all sensible people rather sensible silver wheels which look feckin awesome compared to black or dirty grey wheels....

It's a bit like Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and ask the audience where the majority say SILVER...... it's clearly right Wink

It’s 50-50 now ...

Think it’ll be grey - worried silver is a bit ‘girly’

Silver isn't girly, it's safe and unadventurous.
