    Question Help and Opinions on alloys

    Ok, have decided to get some new alloys due to my old ones buckling, so i have a couple of questions firstly my old alloys where boss but i was told that the xtr alloys had a reputation for being weak and buckling (thanks for telling me after i buy them) so does anyone know a nice strong make that will last longer than 6 months. also, i know its been asked over and over and over but whats the best offset for an astra g lowered 40mm on 18s? i really dont want any catching.

    now the fun bit, i have been looking at alloys and made a little short list, so opinions please.

    bk 299 in chrome

    bk 299 in hyper black

    Kei force 10

    decorsa co53

    toora t250

    any advice would be great.

    If those KEI rims were NOT multistud fitment, I'd go for those. But unfortunately, having that trait makes them appear quite tacky. The BK rims are quite nice.

    agree with simonP on the kei's...look smart shame bout the multistud though... me m8 just got some on this focus and the do looks SWEET but the badge @ the front (FORD) and the multi holes let it down a bit!!!

    Ima quite liking the decorsa co53...
    the bbk looks a bit to old skool imo
