Which wheels (pics inside)

Going to go with ultralight 15" wheels.

Either these: - will have the viper stripes the same colour as the lip on the wheel (chinq is black)



These (in pink with polished lip custom painted)


or these in the pink with polished lip again


Im thinking the ones with the anodised red lip

Re: Which wheels (pics inside)

if it were me, i'd go with the white ones from the fiom the top set of wheels

the red and black ones are good, but very like alexs. they suit a red car well, not sure about a black

Personally I think that red rim'll suit the black car more than it does the red.....

Re: Which wheels (pics inside)



Im not too good with photoshop

The missus likes pink, so im going to do the five spokes shown above, with polished lip, and bright pink centres.

Going to spray the vent in the bumper the other little orange bits pink to match.

Also pink viper stipes (mainly cos the laquar on the paint in one spot on the roof has lifted, and the stripe will cover it)

A cento will float with 185s

Re: Which wheels (pics inside)

Yup.

There is the simple issue of grip over drag. Big wide tyres increase fuel consumption and decrease speed. The height of the tyre is exprssed as a percentage, so a 185/55 tyre will have a wall height of 55% of 185. A 175/50 will have a wall height of 50% of 175. ie less.

Taller tyres = less acceleration

Cheers

Re: Which wheels (pics inside)

looks like those are Rota wheels you've got in the pics, screaming. i didnt think they made the wheels in a fitment suitable for cinqs or seis? or are you planning to use wobbly bolts?

Re: Which wheels (pics inside)

They are indeed Rotas - im the UK distributer for Rota

The wheels im putting on are 4x100 ET40

However hubcentric spacers, stud conversion, and wobble nuts are in the post.

Cost me an absolute fortune I can tell you!

Even at trade price on wheels/tyres/spacers/spraying, the wheels are going to cost me what I paid for the car near enough

Being Rotas main dealer thou, I cant really put anything else on
