well Mr Bhaji - San, you wouldnt say thet if you were close up to the standard alloys, they really could do with a refurb, but that will be someone elses job should they wish. actually vac'd it out too ! couple of little bits and bobs to sort , then its concentrate solely on the Goof.

Banded steels look great Mythbuster [B)], bet they weigh abit though :lol:.

John, still looks awesome on the standards!

Craig, :love:
Deffo does still look awesome on the standard wheels!

Thanks Arun, the pictures make it look cleaner than it is. Found a tiny bit of rust creep on the side of the car at the rear arches after I cleaned it :(. Another job to get fixed.

Shut the bloody bonnnet! ;)



*looks good Craig :D
I know, I know :rolleyes: 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.

And thanks for the comment

Thanks! :D but yeah, deffo weigh a lot more than the 16 inch alloys I had on while the steelies were being banded :lol: Still drives a lot nicer than on the alloys to be fair, lot more stable(then again, alloys didn't fit properly :shrug:)... Seems like it's slower on the steelies as well. Oh well, Slow and (kinda) low for me! [B)]



@Arun: That pic looks epic, almost looks like it's a toy car with the blurry stuff! But yes it does need a polish, badly... Was going to but I decided repainting and doing up the rear quarters was a bit more important. Will give it a good polish soon though. Still, it's not nearly as faded as it was when I bought it!
Remember this... God, seems like such a long time ago, bit more than a year tho :whistle:

Oh 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?

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 day :)
