    Am I mad if........

    ........I spend over £1600 on some new wheels/tyres for my Mk5 cdti 150? I have the standard sri alloys on at the moment and have seen some gorgeous 18'' Irmscher Stars in black on LMF. Theyre reduced from about £1800 to about £1300 at the moment but I'll also need to buy tyres - obviously a decent set.
    My friends are saying Im crazy spending that on some wheels, what do you guys recon? Help me decide please!

    Its your car and your money at the end of the day. I Take it its the black sportstars that your looking at? I love these wheels but don't think I could pay that price for some especially if you have the 18" XP penta style wheels on at the moment????

    Did you see the EVO stars as they are reduced in price also as an alternative? I prever wheels in silver as it shows their detail more.

    No I dont have the 18'' Xp's at the moment, I have considered getting these aswell. I have the standard 17'' sri wheels on now and i think they look too small and very dull! Those two links are the ones that ive been looking at, Im just half and half at the moment because it is a lot of money to pay for some wheels like you say! I love the silver but I was considering black as my car is black, i have tints and black vxr grill on at the moment so thats the kind of look im going for.
    Oh decisions decisions!!!
