    What a wheel idiot....

    You might have that at the start of the week i was considering selling up and get myself a Ford Fiesta ST2. You guys soon changed that!!

    Anyway, the money that I was looking to spend on that will now be going towards you wheels, just not sure which ones?

    Despite looking through the 'Rimz Thread' several times, my overwhelming love for MTM Bimoto's is unmatched.

    Question number 1: The cheapest I can find them brand new is £1700 (without tyres), anyone know of them on sale for cheaper?

    Question number 2: Do I need 19''?

    Question number 3: Any other suggestions?

    Your help would be much appreciated!!

    Just seen them posted in the eBay section, ideally I would want diamond cut - Also the hairline crack would worry me

    not in the Rotiform fan club am afraid as you seem to need a big sticker advertising the fact that you have them plastered on your car.

    I guess so, bigger is always better....

    Cars not lowered, that will come later - Will that look odd?

    Nothing to add other than a friend of mine recently took delivery of an ST2 and has now also Mountuned it. Insanely good fun to drive and I'd sell a kidney to get similar Recaro seats in my car, but I do prefer the look and build quality of my A3, even if it is a diesel :D

    I must be getting old lol
