    Talking New Wheels, Opinions wanted!

    Finally got round to taking pics of the Cup 1's that I have refurbed and fitted, not 100% I'm going to keep them as they are 17's and would prefer 18's. What you guys think?

    I think they look smart, did you need adapters to fit them. I would have went for a gunmental grey color, but it does look nice anyway

    Unfortunately Rears are 9J ET47 so that's the minimum poke I can get on the adapters!

    yeh 20mm, although now you raise a good point! I might be able to get slimmer adapters to bring the rears in a touch as i'm pretty sure I have room between the coilovers!

    The twist style ones? Strangely never been a fan of the twists, I much prefer a multispoke or fat straight spoked wheel. I recently sold a set of 997 sport design wheels which I loved on my car, just at 19" they were just too big :o(
