    What size are they? I've never seen them before.

    As for colour, I'd stick with silver, if you go too dark your wheels just become black circles.

    Ahhh, that'll explain why they look tiny then, massive tyres on that first pic ha! Despite saying silver, I do like dark wheels with a chrome lip! Do it!!!

    Ooh, good question! Most people say around ET35 I think, so that's slightly either way depending on your choice. Think there's less risk of rubbing if you go for 20, and it'll be close enough st 37. I've never used spacers though, so probably best wait until some spacer experts come along.

    I'm think 20mm as the spokes will poke outwards
