    Torn on what to do with my wheels

    Need some advice with my wheels.

    This is how my car currently stands: http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/vb...?do=view&g=910


    Do i....

    A) Save and get them refurbed, as they do have curbing and get them sprayed power silver (same colour as pentas) - Currently have TSW Reflex 18"

    B) See if i can swap them for some OEM Vauxhall alloys (17") like SE2 Turbo alloys, SRI Turbo alloys or Snowflakes


    Any and all suggestions welcome!

    Cheers all

    If it was me I'd keep the wheels you've got as I think they look great, they really suit the car.

    But if you really want to change your wheels the SE2's would look good too.

    Cheers dude!

    Thats why im torn!

    I do like the wheels and iv always wanted a set of these since i was able to drive (17 - im now almost 26)... Iv had this car almost 2 years, and after a month of having it i manged to get these dirt cheap so i was well chuffed!

    But i do like some of the OEM wheels too and it would make it easier to sell if and want i decide to do so. Plus, less money on insurance and tyres and it wont feel like im gona smash my wheels each time i hit a bump lol

    Out of the 3 OEM wheels I'd either go for the SE2's or turbo's. I don't think the snowflakes would suit the car.

    But I'd still keep the ones you've got. I've always liked them on your car.
