Ok been offered a swap for my katanas. Done a wheel fitment check online and they should fit with spigot rings. They are 02 astra alloys. 16" the twin 5 spoke type. Not got a pic as im on my mobile. What do we think? As there smaller than the katans n being standard vauxhall wheels no doubt wont be as wide as my katanas so should mean I can lower my car without worry of opening arches. Will have to do a photoshop when i get on pc n see how they look. Would spray em black I think n would be something different.

done a very quick photoshop. not the best so didnt save it lol. did the sri wheels same colour as i did the katanas (gun metal grey) and with it lowered, looks a hell of a lot better than the katanas do. so might go for it

not gonna bother with them astra ones, moment of madness yesterday i think. still after swapping the katanas though, just hope someone will swap.

i mean i could arch roll but for the price of arch rolling i dont wanna spend that much to roll them to fit katanas lol. id rather use that money for something else. would diy roll but that would risk a c**k up and i dont want to c**k up over the sake of katanas lol you see where im going here lol.

want rid of the katanas before i lower, even stock alloys would do for now just so i can lower, i would lower it on the steelies but i dont like the look of lowered cars on steel rims and if i but lowering springs or coilies then it will be a while until i can afford decent wheels. so im stuck in the middle hovering about now between wheels and lowering lol.

but for time being im better off concentrating on the spoiler and painting other bits etc.......

fair enough you just need to make a decision, do you want nice spanking wheels while handling like a boat still lol or alright wheels but having good handling and nice ride height i know what i would go for because i did it first ;)

lol super dish.

banded steelies that sort of style im not keen on, i like my multi spokes, 5 spoke and jdm styling, something sporty looking

yeah i seen yours with steelies on ya progress thread, ride height looks mint but the steelies do look rather silly with it. might get away with it on my car though as the cars a dark colour so the steelies wont stand out so much with trims removed

Hopefully go up today and either put spoiler on as it is or flatten it off a bit and lacquer it. Depends how it looks when I got there. Not seen it since I put last coat of paint on lol

steelies are the best = flatout on all roads lol,

hate alloys sometimes, that feeling when you didnt spot the pot hole, bungggg, like someone stabbed you in the back

steelies and low is good look, ive been hunting a set for the aerodeck but its a mission on 4x114, jus something about a car when you see it with steelies, you dont expect VTEC....

plus i've heard that alloys slow cars down anyway.

great job with the rattle can top work

Why not try getting the full size spare from 4 scrapped cars?

how do alloys slow your car?

Thats what I thought. Fair enough if there huge, heavy and real wide. But some alloys can help with acceleration and grip. A bit wider for grip and if the alloys are lighter then thats all good.

I'm looking forward to seeing the spoiler fitted.

so am i :(

was ment to go up yesterday, turned out didnt have time.

was gonna go up today. missus not well stayed in bed all day so i couldnt go up there as i had the kids :( no chance tomorrow as the missus has now gone work tonight, nightshift= bed all tomorrow :( so my next chance is monday, is taking the p**s now this, i keep wanting to go up but not getting the chance :( should have been on at least 3 weeks ago lol. ahh well things happen.

right back to alloys lol. got another question. not been offered but iv offered on swapz.co.uk for some Mg zr 17" multispoke straight cuts. How well do they fit mb2? I know the pcd is fine etc but what about offset? Would I have problems? Iv noticed there quite wide wheels. there 2x 215/45 and 2x 225/45.

any good?

I know what you mean mate. I started sorting out my fogs over a month ago, and other things have came up. You will get there in the end, there is no point rushing and f**king it up.

I would imagine they will fit, but don't take my word for it lol.

hoping the guy says yes as i think they would look nice in black and hopefully i can lower the car a bit on them
