    What do your alloys say about you?

    The number of 'My new alloys' or 'My refurbed alloys' thread got me thinking - alloy choice is perhaps the ultimate statement you make about you and your car. Black, white, green, purple, infinite other colours, then you have the style, plain, fancy, really big or OEM...

    So, what do your wheels say about you? Are you a 5-spoke retro fan (kind of like me I guess) or do you like your green wheels to shout out loudly?

    My last car had alloys which I got real cheap because they had been kerbed. I bought them with the intention of refurbing them. I never got round to it lol.
    I like wheels with 5 or so long thin spokes, I dont like designs that are too intricate & hard to clean.
    Im convinced 3 spokes are going to make a comeback, so Im getting some to get in there early LOL
