New 19" wheels! With pics...

Postby hype - Sun Feb 19, 2012 8:00 pm

Well I've been thinking about this for a while, and then circumstance meant that it all happened really quickly, so here are my new 19" rims!

I know there's not much love on here for matt black alloys (I always seem to be in a minority when people ask for opinions on colours) - but I absolutely love them. It also means I'm now running on 265/30/19 rear and 235/35/19 front, and they're NOT run-flats, the change in ride is incredible (no more tramlining!).

Hope you like them, sorry the pics are so uninspiring, just couldn't find the time this weekend to take any decent ones.

I think the matt black colour suits the colour of your Z, I like them :thumbsup: Also like the way the tires fill the wheel arches, makes it look a lot meaner :)

Matt black is fine, just not on a black car. :thumbsup:

Looks sweet! Where did you get the wheels from and are they CSL replicas?

Cheers all, must say the grey / black combo is working better than I thought. They go nicely with my matt black grill, which as it happens is the only other mod I've made!

Alloys were from RimStyle, not CSL reps, although I guess you could argue they're similar - was certainly never my intention to got for reps anyway, just a nice looking wheel.

Love the wheels, they really look good - notice you are running on Alpina spec tyres now :wink:

Here's one from the front, again, it's not my finest photography moment... Didn't realise those tyre sizes were Alpina standard, good to know.
