Better have a look when not driving.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Today my wheels came back from the Powder Coater, all finished up.
I think they look Bloody Awesome.

Also ordered the new tires for the wheels, they will be "Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance" in the size 195/40 R17 81V XL, they are BAA tires, B-label for Fuel consumption, A-label for grip by rain, and A-label for noise.
I have chosen 195/40R17" size because they are closer circumference wise to the original sizes, previous to much oversize tires where not to my liking.
They are only 0.8% bigger than the basic 175/65R14" tires and only 0,56% bigger then the optional 185/55R15" tires.
With this size tire the TwinAir engine has still some poke in 5th gear.

Made a quick photoshop to see how it could look like with the wheels on.
