    What to do with wheels?

    I don't know what to do with my Gsi Turbo wheels. They need a re furb for sure, so probably looking at £130 for them to be done. Next up is I need to replace the tyres on all 4 wheels, as they are a poor make of tyre. So looking at £70 a tyre for something decent. Should I keep the standard wheels and get all that done, or buy some 18" Snowflakes? Thats the only other wheels I would put on my Gsi (I think). What should I do? My Gsi is Arden Blue

    True, I don't want to waste any money on the Gsi rims if I go to 18 Inch. The money the Gsi wheels need spent on them would nearly get me the 18's. Looks like I will have to use the Gsi rims til I get some 18's sorted out. I was thinking about getting the wheels re furbed and painted black. Looks like 18's then

    I had the same dilemma recently mate its a hard call as i think the 18" flakes is all i would have changed for, i ended up keeping my 17" flakes and re tyring them and refurbing them its a hard choice m8

    Lol, I will probably be cheaper to just get mine re furbed, and painted black. I might as well go for that. It is a hard choice. Cheers

    19" Veccy Snow Flakes! They look much better only having 5 spokes than the VXR ones!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    That is why I went for the corsa rims. They where cheaper then getting mine refurbed

    White is the new Black
