    What wheels should i buy !?!?!

    Hi, i am looking to buy some new wheels for my MK4 Astra Sri (black)

    i need new tyres soon so rather than just replace them i thought i might give the car a new look...

    i am quite taken by these wheels from TSW , the Holsten
    http://www.tsw-wheels.co.uk/?section=16&wheel_id=53

    but not sure if they will look good on not?

    or the TSW Vortex
    http://www.tsw-wheels.co.uk/?section=16&wheel_id=52

    other options are the astra turbo coupe wheels which keep popping up for sale on ebay and here.

    any ideas?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Harsh as i'm going to sound, i'm not a fan of either.
    Personally i think something like a Kei Force 8 or 10 would look nice.

    yeh i no the holsten's could be quite different, im a bit of a dub fan, an i like this clean and smooth, so im not too fused on multispokes...

    i would buy them in 18" btw....

    i have seen the kei force 10 and 8, but they do get done alot, i want to be
    slightly different?

    IMO the Mk 4 doesn't really lend itself to a "clean and smooth" kind of shape without some serious bodywork done to it.

    yeh your right it's not exactly a dub classic, and i wont be spending ££££ on body work...

    how about Kei D2, its a chunky 5 spoke ?

    Talk to MatG. His was/is/stillis/willbe(?) smoothed over and a bit euro-looking.

    Get the holstens and slam the bugger right down about 80mm.

    Will look ace
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
