I like alot but not sure if the white trim, when I get my pro race refurbed I was gonna redo the red trim or maybe try yellow but will see. Otherwise great rims, how does she handle on 19s, my pro race are 18s and they were perfect ride.

It's a wee stainless lip. Tbh wen I was 1st wantin them I wanted all black but like the steel lip as it sorta highlights the other wee chrome bits n bobs

Personally I don't get the fascination with fitting bigger wheels. 17's look just right, and cheaper tyres. These look too big in my opinion, but I know I'm in the minority...?.....

I have to agree, plus i think if i had larger wheels and less rubber on the sidewalls i would have very square looking wheels very quickly considering the roads i drive down :).
Having said that i do really like the look of these particular wheels on the car :thumbs:

I was expecting this to look awesome as they are the same as Bacons GTA, but I feel the black BBS alloys don't work as well as his silver alloys. Maybe lowered would make it improve the look?

Black wheels look smaller and the coloured lip in my experience makes them look smaller. Still look nice thou but silver would have had more visual impact.

Lowering will make a huge difference, if u can put some eibach arbs on it will significantly improve the handling.

This topic had been discussed loads and even thou many would disagree I would not say defo not get Koni fsds and eibachs even thou both mine have them on lol. If you want a damper and spring combo which are not adjustable i would say the bilstein combo from autolusso would be a good kit which most people have endorsed they have them fitted. If you want to go all out, then fully adjustable coilovers like kw v3s would be awesome but are expensive, if your not going to use it to its full potential then again not worth it.
