If you want them I have a set on mine that I might be offloading. I'm thinking of going back to 17s as the cost of 18 inch semi slicks will end up sending me broke.

They aren't my favs but then again I haven't seen any that really seem to be a nice fit or look. Pain in the A these 1ers are for wheels.

Speedy's (my new name for spdrcr the Dutton Guru) offer could be interesting if you like the look though.

They arent ricey at all. As long as they dont have outrageous designs or chrome you should be fine..

They look good on Jeffs car, but not my cup of tea. Definitely a must if you're a racer like Jeff

LOL! quite right Brevillle...there is rice and there is rice. There are some variants of basmati from the dehradun region that can cost a fair packet. Don't even get me started on "Texmati"...

I think I need a coffee.

Have seen Jeff's wheels in the flesh D and i must say, I think they would look hot on your TiAg..

They are virtually mat black and would match in well with your shadow line grills and CF acc.

I didn't think we used pressure thingys on Oz 1ers?

Wheels look good! I'll be looking for 17 x 8" track wheels all around. They'll fit over the brakes ok won't they?

That's what I thought. I also like the idea of the BMW Perf wheels in graphite too..
