    Alrighty then... wheels. Again.

    Good moaning peeps.

    Ok, further to my previous post regarding wheels, I've moved away from the black theme. And toward a set of more conventional wheels... Wolfrace Katana 17's to be precise.

    Opinions?



    I know it's down to what I like, but I'm one of those people who analyses everything he does. That said, if all goes according to plan, these are getting ordered tonight!

    think they look out of place on a family car. Needs bodywork mods or body colour coding to look right. I know the trim is black on black but it should be black painted trim. Just my opinion though
    Be Happy

    I hear what you're saying, the wheels are just a start. Still not really sure what direction it's going to take yet, but I'm not gonna go banzai on it - it's still the family workhorse, so subtle is probably gonna be the way forward. Tints and maybe a lowering kit next year. And you can't really go too wrong with 5 spokes, imo

    Agreed, 5 spokes are a pretty safe bet and suit the bus. Go for it




    Ignore the fact that its a GSi.

    I've got Astra Sri turbo wheels on my black Gsi. They are coloured in Anthracite and go with the car (IMO).

    Not yet figured how to post pics on here

    Look what turned up today







    Car needs a wash I know, but I've been otherwise occupied. Those drums could do with a seeing to as well.
