IT MOVES!

finish at 5.

golf will look lower when its done - as it is there the arches have been cut back so they have lost about 2" on the rear and 1" front. when the trims go back on it will visually lower the car and hopefully make the proportions a bit better

considered polishing the lip of the wheels and going anthracite centres but my mate has sold his polisher so it'll be hours and hours and hours of work.

still, nothing to loose i suppose

Dave , the smooth lines of the wheels don't suit the shells straight edges , the side of the car is covered in straight shut lines and body creases . A fat 5 spoke would look awesome .

Something like this , you have to visualize the proper dish of course :lol:

Interesting mr bond.

I thought they possibly look a bit modern but that's about as deep as i looked into it.
Long term plan is definately deep dish split rims of some sort or in the meantime possibly some avez a's.

Definately going to run the porsche wheels for a while. Satin black centres might take the focus off the curves?

You bugger, i've got too much to think about now!
