    As smoothie said get some BBS LM, CH or CK reps. Those alloys would ruin your car mate.

    Cant see nothing wrong with them for that money mate, but i don't know what the quality of finish etc would be like

    If its reps you are after then all the guys on my local forum would use the below if they were going for reps over genuine as he can basically get whatever you want lol and would be well worth an email if you were keen for a bit of discount
