Anyone got any suggestions or pics? 18s at the mo and dont want to lose the ride comfort so not sure would 19s make it look like a 4x4? whats u lads reckon?

    Put up a photo of car as is,Any good photo shoppers want to play with it?

    Cheers Seanick

    Yeh Richy_c was thinking that would be the cheapest option was and still be keeping the ride quality. Just have this niggling doubt that the black will maybe make the wheels look smaller?Thats why i was thinking about 19s.

    I've lowered it now. Ignore the fact that on the pic there seems to be another car behind yours. I haven't got time to do it properly because it takes ages and I have to get my daughter to the station, but again, it gives you an idea

    Yeah i say its fair price. I'd try offer £600 or £650 and mention the kerb marks. But they dont look major only minor marks and probably wont be able to see once on the car and from a distance. I was considering these myself but got 19s instead.

    Why don't you just get your wheels painted. Rhyso on here got his wheels which are the same as yours painted a dark athracite colour and they look spot on.
