    Just ordered some new wheels!

    I hate my current wheels. They look good, but they are a pain in the ass. Cleaning them is really hard, the stainless rims are impossible to polish properly because the spokes curl over them and obscure them so you can't get your hand in there. The stainless rims are fragile - there are loads of dents and mis-shaped sections. Not only that, but now 3 or 4 of them are bend, so I get a constant wobbling!

    So, I bit the bullit and bought these:



    They are BK Racing BK999 8x18 et42. As you may have spotted, they also look just like 18" versions of the Astra VXR alloys. A mate at work got these wheels and they are really nice, well impressed by them. Should be easier to look after! Only £350 too!

    Anyone got photos of these on a Mk4 / Coupe at all by any chance?
