    I am in need of some alloys quite desperately roughly don't want to spend more than 500 with or without tyres 16inh to 17inch. I just don't know what to go for as i have had Rotas before and did have BBS before i aquaplained and smashed one of them up but can't get a replacement due to the fact the model i have is discontinued. I am after Black,White, or Bronze, and JDM makes for example rays, enkei, works etc i know i woulnt get them brand new for the 500 budget but 2nd hand i don't mind as i would probaly plan to do a refurb soon.

    anyways i was thinking brand new rota cirucuit 10's in bronze in 17inch??

    anyways heres a pictures of my car!!!

    and tell me your ideas!!!

    Gunmetal Torques would look 8)

    Would say Bronze usually on Cosmic's but I doubt it'd go with the bonnet/tints on yours.

    mate you need some offset.

  8. Bong Guest

    Agree with that, will look good

    Or Team Dynamics Pro Race always look great on EP

    16" rota slips :Tongue:

    Your circuit 10's sound like an idea aswell, Mugen look :Wink: .

    Rota, Team Dynamics, OZ ... yawn.

    Some of these in gunmetal would look fantastic IMO


    if you can't stretch to the real deal team dynamics pro race 3's are nearly the same and a lot cheaper.

    Maybe he wants his car to functional?

    No doubt, and believe you me i'm the last person to sacrifice performance for appearance.

    But, you can sacrifice a little freshness and keep optimum geometry, whilst still getting a set of killer wheels to look good.

    I have my car low, but just high enough so that it can take my track wheels, my 16x7s or my 17x8s. The geometry is setup for track use, but it drives and looks good on the road too.

    Alls Im saying is that there's far too many EPS out there rocking torques, 1.2s and various OZs. Pains me to say it but a hellalot of people are now fitting gt3s, which forced me to consider other styles.

    Tang sounds like a cool dude with an eye for the style, sometimes you just need help to see past the rota barrier that has swept the uk jap communities these past few years.

    Buddyclub p1s are excellent value if you want function, they look race bred too, shame they don't do a 16x8. I use them on track with a 225/600-16 cut slick, they weigh next to nothing so do a great job, but I need a wider stance for the street.

    Hth, sam

  19. scottboy Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    PCD is the same so technically yes, offset may be too low tho
  20. L.Tang Valued Contributor ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆

    scottboy WOT is the lowest offset i can get away with then mate? and would 8j width be ok?
