Deffo does still look awesome on the standard wheels!John, still looks awesome on the standards!
I know, I know had the bonnet open as I was giving the fiancee's 206 a jump start as I had just changed the radiator and its off the road just now.Shut the bloody bonnnet!
*looks good Craig
Thanks! but yeah, deffo weigh a lot more than the 16 inch alloys I had on while the steelies were being banded Still drives a lot nicer than on the alloys to be fair, lot more stable(then again, alloys didn't fit properly )... Seems like it's slower on the steelies as well. Oh well, Slow and (kinda) low for me!Banded steels look great Mythbuster , bet they weigh abit though .
I wanna change the front bumper but gotta wait for more money's lolThat looks pretty sick.
Get them vents cut out of the front splitter
lol steel love is the 1 lol they been banded to 7.5j - 8.5jOooh you copy cat! How much wider are they?
Look sick mate!
Mine are 15s n I got 195/45 on there stretched on the 8.5s n only slightly stretched on the 7.5s but wanna get some 185/45 all round, the 7.5s sit just inside n the 8.5s sit just outside the arch. I had 16x9j on before but I hated that they were 16s so sold up n brought these on the same dayOh damn! That's a lot wider than mine lol. Mine are 7j and they're exactly even with the wheelarches(left rear sticks out a bit cause the fender was pushed in)... I didn't dare to go any wider for the Dutch MOT and because I wanted to keep my tires, as I wasn't sure wheither it would be safe to put 185's on 7.5 or 8j's(tireshop boss told me it wasn't, apparantly it's completely safe lol)... Plus I don't know if the Dutch MOT(called the APK) let's you have the rim edges outside of the fenders.
But yeah I have always loved deep dish wheels, wheither it's BBS's like Suj had(with deeper dish) or steel. I really love how you did the yellow part, looks really well done. Gotta say I don't see why I've never seen banded steel on other pre-facelifts before though, imho they're made for banded steel over alloys(same with the Mk2 Golfs)...
EDIT: Also, are they 14 or 15 inch? Looks bigger than my wheels?
You've obviously not looked at my RR The wiper hun
TBH, I've heard the mk1 BMW 1 series wipers fit that age VAG, That might look a bit better.... grrr. I need my own mk2 to play with
