    Have been looking to change my wheels for a long time now, did think about changing the colour of my anthracite BBS CK's but decided against it. (they are now up forsale)
    Wanted something that would be in keeping with the rest of the black and white theme I have on the car. Finally ended up going with the Rotiform BLQ's in gloss black, at first i was a little worried but I am pleased with the results.
    The pictures dont really do the wheel justice with them been black as its hard to bring out the detail in the spokes.

    They are Rotiform BLQ 19x8.5 ET45

    Heres a few pics from our local club mega meet

    I looked at these a while back and bottled it as it something quite outside the box. Looks pretty good!

    I liked it on the CKs, and although I don't rate the BLQs, his car looks really nice, and very aggressive looking, gives his car a different persona if that makes sense!

    He'll be goin Big Turbo in 2011 now haha

    There is a good chance that these will be up for sale as I have something else in the pipe line, they are fitted with 225 35 19 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric which are nearly new, I will measure the tread depth and update. They are only a month old. PM if your interested. I paid £1200 for them
