    what you think of my wheels?

    hi, had my wheels done in A22 BMW sparkling graphite today.

    gonna dress the tyres tomorrow and take some pics in the light but heres a few crappy ones to give u an idea of what it looks like.

    ive bought some of the new vauxhall badges to go in the centres but im wondering whether to fit them or leave them off what you all think?

    Yeah me too.

    They look a bit like black chrome. Very nice.

    thanks! glad you like it! do u think i should fit the chrome new centre badges?

    the paint is actually an expensive blend apparently, the guy said i will really see the effect in the sun light, hes done a great job, not bad for £120 all in!!

    Looking good. I'd say fit the badges, the centres look a bit plain without them. Maybe do them body coloured though rather than standard chrome finish?

    thanks!! yeah £120!! hes a guy who lives in my road who gives me good deals and he is a perfectionist too wich is always a gd thing when it comes to painting!

    they are blacked out black lexus style lights mate i bought them on ebay, think the ppl buy them, tint them and sell them on. no they are not legal cus there are no reflectors but if worst came to worse i wud have to stick some magnetic reflectors on for a bit, ive had them over 6 months and had no trouble, and i know the guy who does my MOT's lol ;-)
