Not a pic of my car, but exactly the same colour and wheels, 1.4i 16v Club.

Honestly what do you think of these wheels that are on it? I was thinking of just painting them either black sapphire or white until about January when I can afford to get some nicer ones, but lately i've decided that they're not that bad....

What do you think?



Here's a bigger picture of just the wheel that I took myself from my car.




Now, go all Simon Cowell on those wheels!!!

i was hoping you'd start a thread like this or ask for some opinions lol as i didnt want to seem rude and say it when you were asking what colour to go for...please change the rims i mean i just wouldnt spend any money on them to make them black or white....just get nicer larger rims and by all means get them done black or white but please new rims lol do not keep those !! just my opinion of course....whatever you choose to do is your chocie as its your car (Y)

Haha, stealth, it's good to get constructive criticism really and also nice to know the opinions of you guys :)

To be honest I didn't know they wasn't alloys (i'm a complete noob when it comes to cars really).

Not sure if it's worth painting them or not now.. May just waiting until January until i've saved up enough to get a decent set rather than try dressing lamb up as mutton in the case of these wheels. Like Chris said, they do their job... for now.

But yeah come to think of it they don't give the car that much justice.

Was thinking of getting something similar to the ones on the CL65 like this...?


Maybe get em in black or white though...

Save your money till Jan (only four months - just dont look at them again till then lol) and either use it to improve your rims or use the difference to do another mod ;)

As standard wheels go, they could be worse...

And believe it or not they are NOT alloys, they are called "structure" wheels... when the trim is taken off you can see that the steel bit has been shaped to hide away underneith it.

it would look better if it was lowered and not look like a 4 x 4 :D

alloys are always a nice thing to have, but those wheels look like alloys and i would keep them for a while at least!

Want a cheap upgrade? Get the wheel covers from the 2009 Club which will fit and look much better IMO.
