BUT

Ive never curbed my alloys passed a year ago.
i havent passed YET but have been driving since i was 8 and havent kerbed any YET.


on the oz's i have contacted the company i will be getting mine from and they are asking oz's head office about the weight of 17"s also the next shipment to the uk is january (container load) so i have chance to get the cash together


i also contacted the company who claimed to have ten spoke michelangelo's in 4 stud fitment and they had indeed got it wrong so it will be 8 spokes for me.

Rolf don't be a clone.

Just picture it in your head, these wheels

With a paint job like this


But with the rims this colour.

You can pick up a set of Venoms 17" in a Vauxhall fitment for under 100 easy. Kerbs scratches and dodgey tyres don't matter. As you will be getting them refurbed and save enough money to buy the best tyres and still save. Would also give you I'm pretty sure the first GP in the UK certainly probably the world sporting Venoms, custom Venoms. Custom stuff for a car instead of off the shelf is always way cooler.

But if you want to be a conformed clone following the herd. That is entirely your choice. Well sorto your choice. Don't suppose you can argue you choose anything if your copying others. Ooh that's quite a deep philosophical point tagged on to the end there.

Can you choose to follow the herd or do you just do it as instinct.
im starting to like this idea now as have worked out that with the way finding a job is going ill have to wait untill june before i can get the OZs

do you have any pointers on where i can get a set other than on ebay?

Re: which wheels for a black 1.2

Kei Force 10's in Hyper Black look amazing, some of the nicest alloys I've ever seen!

What do you think of Dezent V Black's? http://www.potn.co.uk/p1003552.htm

They look great on GP's and they're pretty cheap too!

Yeah, I was just suggesting because OZ's usually cost a fortune (and I'm sure I read that you didn't have a job somewhere so you'll most likely be tight on cash) and Dezent's are some decent looking budget alloys (as budget as alloys get anyway).

Go for 16"'s, I don't know about the Grande Punto but I know that 17"'s aren't good for 1.2 MK2 gearboxes (I presume it'll be a similar thing tbh).
