    Finally! They arrived.

    Couple weeks ago , I asked evryones opinion on wheel colours. With ordering them came the wait.

    Today received a call saying they were in.. so off I went!



    Little stretch too


    Must admit, I should have went for 19s but I still love them.

    Just thought Id throw this in too, looked kinda cool.

    Nice wheels Matey....but should have gone for darker colour....kinda clashes with the black trim. Just my opinion though.

    All the Best

    Thanks for the feedback.
    Yea mate I wanted the black to start but a few of you " no names " haha, twisted my arm into the chrome.
    I do like them, if they offered a gunmetal finish or shadow chrome... I would have went there

    Sorry but they don't suit as they are, drop the car a bit & maybe different colour, then they may work, but atm, not a fan, but if you like then its all good

    3SDMs are definitely a slammed car wheel, look odd on a stock car, sure they'll look better tho once you've got the springs fitted.

    Is that a 225 on a 8.5j?

    Ino Ino, I look and think black would have suited it, but im rather tempted to remove the black window vinal and wrap it in like a brushed alu finish.

    as said I have springs to fit too, but im thinking more of coilovers atm.

    dropping will come, although maybe not as low as it should be.
    I still need to be able to drive it hah.

    The wheels are 18"x 8.5 and 18" x 9.5
    I cant remember tire sizes tbh mate, will check tomorrow for you.

    I wouldn't worry too much about their size if you are lowering the car....you should get a quieter ride and a few more mpg on the 18's than 19's. I would run them till Spring and if still can't live with them....why don't ya get them sprayed or powder coated, oh and dinnae forget some Audi wheel centre caps.

    Same as mine and I love em. Admittedly I've got to lower mine as it does look a bit odd at the mo, but I'm going for air ride as I also need to get down some awful country lanes. Gonna take a little while though as It's not cheap. I'll get there though lol.

    Oh and BTW I bought a set of wheel woolies from clean your car. I know they are expensive for a set of brushes, but these wheels are a bugger to clean by hand. I had bruises all over the top off my hands trying to get to the back of the rim. It was the best £40 I've ever spent. I can thoroughly recommend them. They turned a pig of a job into an easy 10 minute one.

    Do it buddy. Honestly they are worth every penny. You don't just have to use them for wheels. You can use them for vents, grill and all sorts of things. Good Christmas prezzie too lol.

    Nice looking wheels, colour is nice, lowering will make them look even better. Although, wrong size tyres, too much stretch!
