Lovely car Jim, I like the wheels but I'm happy with my 15's.

I'm sure you could shift those 17s on here pretty quickly if you fancy a change. :D

I beg to differ, on the rare occasion I dress smartly many people are ofte heard to explain "oh you can polish a turd"...

Welcome Jim, nice car and the wheels look good :)

Before and after

Postby jimk » Sun Jun 10, 2007 6:43 pm

Before on 215/40_17

After on 195/50_15

Feel and looks better IMHO, much more comfortable ride and, should I drive over a coin, I won't be able to tell whether it is heads or tails like I could with the 215/40s. :lol:
There may be less grip when driving 10/10ths but this is an area of the performance envelope that I rarely visit as I do all my driving on public roads.

Cracking car, and I prefer the look of the 15's.

I particularly like the way you arranged an extra coat of wax, and some sunshine for the "after" photo
