    Hi All
    My alooys on my S3 are abit scuffed, so I was thinking about refurbing them in either the original silver or anthracite or black. What do people think?

    Or Should I just sell them and get some different ones?
    If so, what would look good on a Sprint Blue S3?

    Thanks

    rims are always a difficult one mate, it depends, if you change will it be 18s or 19s, are you fussed if they are heavy wheels, and if you do change, how much you got to play with... then you can get some ideas of whats out there

    If you lke the way the car drives ie handling then stay with the 18" if you want more bling then go with the 19" i have had about 4 sets of 19" wheels and now im back on 18" as wish i never fittd 19" at all .

    BBS sound good but arent they horrendously expensive??? I would probably just stick with 18" for the handling.
    If I sold my S3 wheels, how much are they normally worth?
