  1. Just a quick side by side comparison of the stock Style ride height compared to my car with the Eibach springs for anyone who's interested in getting these.
  2. Found this interesting set of pictures of Ford Focusses/Foci with different aftermarket alloy wheels. Worth a gander :)
  3. Oh JPS Lotus F1 car was around when I was growing up too. That and the Gulf Oil livery on race cars made a huge impression on me then. Thought about getting the alloys resprayed but this would add to the costs. So far as I can see online, Gunmetal/Anthracite are the most popular and some wheel manufacturers have the bronze colour discounted. Thankfully I am in no rush and if need be, will just save more money to get the right one. Just gonna get my current alloys balanced properly at the Ford garage as they done it before to a very good standard. If anyone has links to online shops, I would appreciate it. Thanks
  4. I was just looking at them! They do look ace but sadly not in my budget at present. I think the bronze will look good against the white. I have seen a few fiestas here with black alloys but never with bronze ones. The way I see it is, if I am going for aftermarket alloy wheels, I might as well go for a colour that will stand out. There no need for it to be subtle lol
  5. Hmmm, I think I get what you're saying. It might be a case of looking at a 5 spoke pattern rather than 6.
  6. I appreciate the opinion. Just wanting something different after a read/follow an interesting piece about a Mk6 Golf GTI off the Speedhunters website. I kinda want my car to stand out a bit and that's why bronze appealed to me. Also, an unfussy clean design with the 6 spokes. There is method to the madness lol
  7. So, I am leaning more and more towards Bronze 6 spoke wheels now after seeing a few cars online with them fitted. Any suggestions for brands or where I could get them from? So far my research came up with: My current alloys are 17" 5x108 5J and ET50. The alloys online are mostly 7 or 8J and and ET 35.
  8. I wrote a long post and now it's gone! booo hiss!
  9. Thanks for the thoughts. I have about €500 to spend on wheels. Any other options that I am not considering? My requirements are that it needs to be gun metal grey/anthracite colour, easy to keep clean and 17" so I can fit my current tyres on them. I am not fussy about brands but would require something durable and hard wearing. Cheers
  10. They do look good to me and I like how they would be easier to keep clean. Sadly I only have the stock Mk2.5 front bumper. Not planning to change the bodykit and only the alloys wheels as the current ones are buckled.
  11. The other one was the Wolfrace JDM Gun metal as below. Any thoughts?
  12. Found these pictures of the Momo Revenge Anthracite on a blog: These are the alloy wheels I was considering for my car and as luck would have it, it's on a black Focus. I think the tyres in the pictures are 215/50/17 rather than 205/50/17 which will be on mine. Slight difference only. Any thoughts?
  13. That's sound advice. There's something to be said to going to a place where they sell the wheels and could give me the advice about what would look and fit well. My current wheels are 17" and 5J width I think.
  14. Gotcha. I would be keeping the same tyres 205/50/r17 on the new alloy wheels. Will they fit on either of the above?
