    I know which ones you bought, and £40 a wheel isn't done properly................my place in Preston will diamond cut the lips and powder coat the centres, what colour would you want the centres doing?

    I'm not sure, they will be fitted to a sprint blue S3 so I'm thinking just a light silver, or a very light grey, the same grey as the splitter and defuser? Your the expert, what's your thoughts? Any idea on price N8?

    Don't fancy colour coded centres? With the splits being 2 piece, coloured centres are a must, silver centres look too plain, what size tyres going to be running?

    Not sure what would suit it? What about a really light bronze? Or Matt ally finish with polished outers and painting the bolts?

    You sure? Doesn't look that low. 215/35 will avoid rubbing, you looking to get them refurbed and put on straight away? What tyres you going for? You cud even run a 5mm spacer on back..

    In the next month or so N8, yeah that's what he said mate. When do most people in the uk stick summer wheels on? Will be falken 452's more than likely bud, only £95 from camskill for 215/35/19. I am warming to the idea of a matt light bronze

    Interesting gynads. I'm rocking a Sprint Blue as well and looking at Speedlines with a coloured centre too, so I'm really interested to see how yours turns out.
