Does anyone think these would look good on my Type S? Or powder coating my Type S alloys? Or just to hold out for some Rages (rare find)?

Type R Alloys on eBay (end time 19-Jun-11 16:50:12 BST)

As you can tell by reading this I am quite undecided at the moment! I think dark rims will not show the brake dust because I have found that the brake dust appears so quickly especially on the rear wheels!

Thanks in advance for your opinions.

Are they ep3 wheels? Go 18" i reckon and gunmetal will really suit your car
Yeah they are, I presume the bloke has a reserve on them though! I'm actually now going to only consider bigger wheels if I did change them as it would be pretty pointless changing like for like, especially as mine are only a few months old, and gun metal like the blade's (rare find) like on a post who had it tinted I saw a few weeks ago would look good.

That's a good question actually hopefully he would still have them! I don't think it would look tacky but would probably only consider it if they were damaged, I'm just fed up with all the brake dust every day!

Yeah theres a pic on here somehwere of the Type S ones powder coated. Still undecided on them. think the shiny look does look a bit plasticy but if it was in matt black/anthricite I'm sure they'd look good.

Although it does seem 18's are the way forward.

Also very interested in the 18" alloys. Hopefully you'll be able to show us some pics.

Are there still tyres on them?
