    Tried Kris M's coupe steels on - this was early 2011 iirc

    Quite liked that look so bought a set


    £250 for the rims
    £288 for the 185/60/13 toyo r888's
    £160 for blast and powdercoat
    £48 for 4 new centrecaps (were supposed to be £6 each but once they were on order there was no going back!)
    Total = £746, could have got a set bbs for this amount...
    The powdercoating does look superb though, the pics don't do them justice, the finish is ultra sparkly :)
