They were a 156 option, so will need spacers to look right on a GTV.

Thanks for that.

She's looking for a set of 17" teledials, (along with quite a few other GTV Owners I imagine) and came across those. I'd never seen them before.

A couple of months ago i bought these beautiful Blackline alloys and have since then been deciding what finish to put on them, well today the decision was made and i dropped them off with a nice young man who's goin to do something a bit different with them and hopefully this time next week they'll be back with me looking awesome !!!!

Cheers Andy, having read all this thread i can't see any other wheels done the same, which means they'll be hopefully unique/stunning or awful and that's why no one has done it lol

They've been polished !! the picture doesn't do it any justice, its like looking in a mirror. The process is quite complicated with the alloy shot blasted first then placed into a large bowl filled with small funny shaped particles that when the machine is switched on rotate round the alloy thus rubbing/polishing the alloy. The first alloy you see in the picture has been under this process nearly 20 hours while rob figures out the best finish possible. I'll try to get some pictures of the machine next time i visit and hopefully collect all 4 finished wheels.
Anyone else interested see Facebook search Wheel Detail

Chrome wheels, bit 80s Si

They have come up well, not my cup of tea but they look spectacular and suit the silver paint too

Trying to upload a pic of my pre-refurb'd jetfins with yellow 330s behind but its not working
