Choosing Alloys.

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I am soon to be possibly changing my wheels on my panther black mk7 zetec s, and just wondered what other people thought my be good wheels to go for. So far I have found these and really like the look of them. http://cdn3.wheelbasealloys.com/17-Inch-Calibre-Calibre-Pro-7-Black-Alloy-Wheels__PI_1932_127_134_972_972_600.jpg . My budget would be 600 quid max. Thanks for any input :D

Those look really nice! At the end of the day it's down to personal choice, and personally I love Rota wheels. Maybe something similar to this? On a black car it'd have to be black wheels imopost-46135-138826947635_thumb.jpg

Not a fan with white on White, but looking at different car colours can show you how nice they can look, I think they look great in gun metal/graphite grey. I wouldn't rush into buying anything as well until you're 100% happy with what you buy, nothing worse than being bored of something after only a short amount of time.post-46135-138827047352_thumb.jpg

Yeah I agree that you should get black alloys. I personally like it when there's more "spokes".

With your red trim/callipers then http://cdn3.wheelbasealloys.com/16-Inch-100-Plus-Monza-RS-Black-Red-Alloy-Wheels__PI_542_137_144_946_946_600.jpg is what I'd choose.

Yeah they are okay though personally I dont like black alloys that much cause it doesn't look that good from a distance. Also black alloys always look 1" smaller than they really are imo. And last but not least if going with alloys that have a "lip" be sure you have your car "low enough" alloys with lip look stupid on cars that have gaps between on wheel and the wheel arch and thats also my own opinion :D.
