Pictures Of Your Wheels Please..

Recommended Posts

Recently landed myself an RS200 Z edition in mint condition, aside from some pretty tatty standard alloys.

Just been looking at www.pxwheels.com and reckon I'm gonna go for a refurb - just need to choose my colour.

I'm toying between anthracite, gun metal and gold..

or should I just play safe and stick with silver?

My car is silver (kinda oyster looking silver actually) with red calipers. In fact, here it is..

Any suggestions are very welcome.

Please post pics of your alloys too.

I really need to get to a meet and see what people have got!

I'm thinking of a refurb as well. My rims have really messy edges

I just PSed the rims this way. I know another member has done it, but I'm not sure it looks good on a platinum ice car.

Had my 18" alloys (TTE) refurbished with matte black epoxycoating (for my winterwheels) and have to say it looks stunning in combination with plat ice and red calipers (had several people saying it looked perfect and standing out from all those plain silver wheels, even when the GS of a friend equipped with 19" chrome wheels standing beside of my sportcross :lol: )

Thanks for all the pictures guys - really helps.

I like black rims but only if there is some nice shiny chrome to go with it and preferably a bit of dish.

Silver is certainly the safe choice and I could always check out those Lextasy decals (thanks for the link).

I'm still thinking gold might work - scooby owners seem to love it!!

If anyone is handy with photoshop I'd love to see gold rims on plat ice body..

WOW - what a fantastic car - love those wheels. Where do you get the wind deflectors from?

I reckon I'm gonna go for the silver and get some of those Lextasy black decals to try em out.

What sort of price should I be looking to pay for a local grease monkey to switch my wheels and tyres over? Just want a ball park figure in mind before I go to a few places.

Looking Nice Tuff but think Calipers in Red look better with Std Wheels IMO ?

D-Sleazy if you want wheels like Scorps I'd suggest taking that pic to a good refurb place... :whistling:

Hi DSleazy,

I reckon stay well away from the idea of getting them powder coated in gold, they won't look too good!!! The ones with middles painted black look really nice, infact i was a hare's breath away from buying a car with those on! I just recently bought myself some new rims. They are the Lenso Reizen 2 in black.

Why don't you buy yourself some new 18's and sell your standard ones (you get about £200 for them cos thats what i got). Check these ones out:
