    My new wheels!

    Well last weekend my OH and I left home at 4.30am and took the drive up north to buy a set of gorgeous wheels from the lovely sxi-coupe!



    I'm so chuffed with them! Rubbish picture quality, taken on Iphone. I hope to get some better ones once the car has been properly cleaned when the weather picks up.

    And before anyone says it, it needs lowering badly. Its next on the list once I've saved up again!!!

    I didn't realise how bad the quality was until it was up on here!! lol

    It does look good and I'm really pleased, just want to get it lowered now so it doesn't look so much like a tank!

    Someone's nicked your wheel trims! Only joking, not a big fan of stealth wheels on that sort of car but when lowered it will look a lot better.

    that's putting me off getting mine done black, not really going to be able to lower the car, due to an 18month old son. Decisions, decisions! lol

    They do look good, yes, but has made me think twice now about having any potentialy future wheels black/gun metal.

    I did think about it, but not sure now - and plus ... there can't be 2 of us in EA with black Pentas eh?! Bad enough us both having the same cars lol !
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    I don't know why its made me think twice to be honest. I'm just not sure if I am keen. I was never sure if I would like it anyway, and was going to get someone to photoshop them for me!

    Don't know really, just think that black wheels on black cars seem to appear smaller IMO - don't know if its just me or not.

    Anyway, I will be different and keep any future wheel choice its standard colour!

    And yes, we are special, lol
