    After 3 months of waiting,my VMR's finally arrived last wednesday,and the new tyres were fitted on Saturday.


    They're Velocity VB3's 18x8.5. The wider profile tyre - 235/40 makes her feel totally planted,even the missus commented!,and the BF Goodrich's offer shedloads of grip and amazing wear (33k on my last set!!)
    I topped them off with a coat of Finish Kare 1000K wax before they went on.

    Pics were taken this morning after a couple of hundred miles in the rain,so not as shiny as they should be!!

    They look a bit like the old BMW E39 M5 wheels, they even have the square indent where the "M" badge would sit.

    Look good though and really suit the car.

    Dressing the tyres would finish it off nice.

    Thanks for all your great comments guys!

    I got them from Niche Conversions,and the finish is gunmetal.

    Yup,i know mate,totally agree with you there,i just haven't had the time or weather for it! I'm going to attempt it today if the weather holds out,and hopefully give her a detail to bring out the bling!

    I got them for £980, a three month wait on them though,unless you're willing to go to 19's
