    Talking New wheels on order!! Yay!!

    Yesterday I ordered some new wheels as mine needed refurbing again as the finish on them didn't last very well. Also, I needed 4 new tyres soon, so figured, this was the best time to replace the lot.

    I have gone for Team Dynamics Equinox 18x8 et45 with Toyo TR-1 215-35-18 tyres. I also order a pair of Equinox 17x7.5 which I'll fit my 205-40-17 Toyo R888s to for quarter mile use.

    I had one of these up against my car and they look great. They seem more like 19s!! They have a stainless steel lip on them too, which looks really good.

    The only downside is I have to wait 3 weeks for them to come through.

    Excatly what I was looking for! They look better in the flesh too - the chrome rims stands out more than they do in the photo.

    Not sure on the price - I did loads of haggling (like I always do). I got about £300 off the full price. I think they are about £200 each though in 18".

    My car will be a mess for PV mate - I'm there for the quarter mile strip action - the car will be stripped and higher than normal at the back. I will clean it though.
