Right guys.....after my recent encounter with a rather deep & nasty pothole at the weekend I need to file a claim against the council so I need to make my mind up as to what wheels get prices on. Masitaly went bust a couple of years ago so theres no hope in getting the wheels I have again unfortunately!!! So I'll need to get 4 completely new ones.....shame eh!! [;)]

What do people think out of the following - I am brave enough to go for Black with polished lip incase you hadnt noticed! LOL! [H]

Kei Kruze Gloss Black - Polished Lip

Posted Image

Wolfrace Kendo Black - Polished Lip

Posted Image

Wolfrace Octane Black - Polished Lip

Posted Image

I was also looking at these Axis Spiders but apparently the company who used to import them have gone bust!!

Or do I go with something similar to what I have now....

Titan Racing Styx

TG Diva Hyper Silver

Heres a pic of my car if it helps form opinions!!!

If anyone else has got any other ideas shout now!!! [:D]

But if your feeling flush you can't go wrong with some BBS LM's....[;)]

100% to my liking, and im fussy! Out of that s election, i reckon the
first one looks the best!

Is that Gap security, I enquired about the Supermesh wheel and had no response, maybe that's why then ( they would look cool on your Bora!).

www.amercianwheels.co.uk list the Axis Spyder for sale. You may wish to contact them if interested.

These are also a similar style to what you are after. Konig E-Racer:

Personally, I prefer the ASA AR1's with black centre's over and above any of the choiced listed above. Here they are in 19" on cage's ride:

Right then.....I have an update!!!!

Because I'm always absolutely tooo bloody busy & some companies are awful at getting back to me with the correct information re: sizes & prices....I'm still chasing quotes for wheels to send off with the letter of complaint to the council!!!!

Sooooooo.....I've just ordered my wheels today because I need them because a.) in the past 6 weeks whilst my spare has been on the tracking has been needed to be done & its worn the outside edge to baldess so rather than buy a new tyre, get a 4 wheel alignment, then buy the wheels & then have the re-alignment done again when I've fitted them...I thought...what the heck...get em bought....oh & b.) I'm getting sick of my Bora looking all 3 alloy legged & sorry for itself.....

So what wheels did I opt for in the end.......

Non of the above - as non of them came in the correct widths, sizes etc I wanted........soooooooooo

I chose the Rial....

Nogaros!!!! Got them for a good price too I think!!!

8x18s for the front & 9x18s for the rear!!!! [H][H]

Should get them next week!!!! Cant bloody wait! [:D][:D]
