    Hi all heres a pic of my car with the normal 18'' s line wheels but i want to upgrade to 19'' wheels heres a pic of the 19s as well which il most likely fit 215/35/19 tyres as il most prob fit coilovers as i dont think lowering springs over s line suspension will be low enough for me, [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ive only gotta budget about £700-850 for a 19'' wheel package as im getting married next month and ive just sold my s line wheels for £650 so im gonna add about £100-£150 of my own any suggestions what will look nice on my car?? pref a different color than silver, cheers

    Hey, if you like them, then they suit your car. It is your money. Personally, I don't like them. I would have got the s-lines sprayed black ... yummy.
    (also, 1st gear ... yay!)

    If you can get yourself a set of BBS CK's cheap enough then get them refurbed. Mine were only 3 weeks old, immaculate before they were dispatched and then damaged in transit by the couriers. £200 bill for getting them refurbished by my mate and DHL paid for it. The finished job on my BBS's are IMO better than the original finish and they were powder coated so better overall wear and tear.

    IMO if you lose the chrome then they might look better but then again its your decision and taste.
