I notice there are so many threads with people asking for photo requests for different alloys, So i thought it would be a good idea to start a thread where everyone with aftermarket alloys could post a couple of pictures, and state what alloys they have (name, size, offset's etc, Tyre profile/width). I feel it would be a great resource for those looking to purchase.

Obviously the success of this depends on those who already have aftermarket alloys helping us out and posting, so PLEASE, it would be very kind of you, and a nice place to show of your own personal taste in wheels.

i think the Buddy Club P1's are my favourite wheel at the moment, but i think the 18" will look so much better mate.

I agree they will look better, but their cheaper, cheaper tyres and a performance gain, unsprung weight baby!

well obviously because your going down a size with the wheel, bit i was meaning more in the sense of looks, the 18 will fill the arch so much better, obviously in my opinion, your choice at the end of the day. :)

your 100% right, its just a matter of wether you prefer that or the benefit of lighter wheels, i was 50/50 and then the reduced cost tipped it in favour of 17's

I've seen a few guys on here with 17s - dont look too bad at all.

P1's are awesome, I've just bought 4 18" P1's from eBay for £360, look in good condition, although bright green so will need powder coating a different colour to match my car

I was looking for some standard alloys for my EP3 and just came across them, he originally wanted £400 and I offered £300 which he knocked back and then a week later I upped my offer to £360 which was accepted.

Like I said they will need power coating as bright green just wont go on my car, but even with that factored in I still think I got a decent deal.

Saying that if my Mrs kicks off I might have to sell them, so I'll keep you in mind if your interested

Sorry to go off topic again but I'd be interested in them too if you did decide to sell, I really want some green rims! They look perfect, plus it would save me powder coating them :police:

Liking those Team Dynamics pigdog, very nice indeed!
