    Lotus Carlton - Wheel refurb time.

    Well, it's time to look at getting my rims refurbed.

    Decided to use a place recommended by Ffoeg. I'm getting one side done at a time for ease my end.

    So as i'm running my standard 16" rims on the Astra, i have the use of my summer 18" rims.

    Strangly enough they fill the Astra arch very well.


    On the LC however.......



    They look a bit lost.

    Let alone on the thin side (215 tyre width)


    Then the space saver on the front.




    I'll post before and after refurb pics when i've taken them.

    The LC looks like a toy car when you take the tyres of the wheels

    will the LC wheels fit on the astra?


    i'd be tempted to try them on, if only to do a little photoshoot.
    Observe the masses and do the opposite
