    Wow, never seen anything like this before they're crazy wheels!

    Very different, wouldn't have them myself but good on you for breaking the norm!

    Are they real Bentley?

    I have to say not the best combo tbh, its to much silver, contrast isn't great, maybe anth would set them of better, just doesn't suit as it is, but if you like then who cares.

    Obviously each to their own but I think those look horrendous. Maybe if you drove a Bentley. Just do not get mixing brands, just looks like a hash IMO.

    im not in the whole "slammed" thing, I think that belongs on VWs and tbh I can't look seriously at an Audi with bentley wheels on. Itd be like slapping jam on a bacon sandwich.

    I say it all the time. It's different and I like different but this time I don't like different. I think NHN is correct with too much silver. From a distance they look like them metal bin lids. Horrible to say and sorry cause I'm sure they cost more than metal bin lids. If you like them though then that's all that matters

    They actually look like hubcaps rather than alloy wheels

    Everyone is different, which is what makes us humans, if it makes you happy then that's all that matters !!!

    Can't make my mind up whether I like or think it just looks crap. Think they'd suit it more if it was on air!

    As said though, fairplay for being different.

    Ah I see.

    Was thinking of VW Bora hub caps like this (similar but not the same)
