Thanks, wheels desperatly need refurbing as they are all badly kerbed plus the tyres arent any good, but I have a set of 185/60s to go on once they are done (soon I hope).

I have to agree, the wheels don't really do it for me. A set of steels with OE trims and nice 165/175's would let the rest of the car shine. As it is, I'm sorry to say, Tim, they detract from the car. :cry:

But, each to their own! Lovely colour that car BTW 8)

Each to their own as they say. I was undecided as of the rims but they look ok to me, I would prefer some silver speedlines eventually if anyone wants to swop :D As for the overriders I think they look 8)

I woke up today to find my car held up with stacks of bricks ... you stole my wheels! :o

They look better on your car than they did on mine Tim, I'm liking my new steelies btw 8)

That BX is a great colour.

Agreed, the colour suits a BX perfectly. I like it a lot.

Wheels are now off ready to be refurbed, shes sporting a set of a normal steelies and GTI/TZD wheeltrims, a short nosed bonnet (which kinda matches) and a TXD chrome grille which matches the bumper strips.

They were originally riveted on, but I used small nuts and bolts when I stuck mine on the 14... Still have one attached to the old bumper too. I'd offer it to you, but it isn't in great nick, and the Phase 1 16v is staying as a Phase 1, so I can't give you that one! :lol:
