Not sure which ones to go for, especially as it's a big decision money wise. Am leaning towards the Blitz 03s as they are sliiick, but those Envy scum have a pic of a Rex on RacingHarts, which looks pretty awesome. Damn...

Bobbeh

See, now my problem is do I want to be associated with the likes of you :D Those wheels are sick, sick, SICK!! And very lucky you have the gold screws, as my mum is only just coming to terms with split rims, and hasn't liked the sound of the bling shine with gold screws. All that should change. This poll is kinda irrelevant now, you've pretty much robbed me of 2k I don't have :D

Buy one piece unless you want to spend all w/e with a tooth-brush... or do as I do and just cover them in carbon brake dust:eek:

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 00:16
Sorry for winding you up.. Racing Hart do some fine wheels too! :)

Yes John, they are a pain to clean.. but when they are they look spectacular :cool: Besides im sad with nothing better to do with my weekends ;)

Seb
26-11-03, 00:19
John, I was planning on buying another toothbrush just for the Soop anyway! Gotta be split rims, always wanted them, they look so awesome, and people will die on the spot, on the street, from the sheer awesomenessnesnes of them :D Bobbeh, had a suspicion they might be yours, but wasn't sure, especially looking at your avatar! Update it man!

Seb

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 00:22
No! ;) - I might be going back to the stock alloys over the winter... so the the old UK's may be going back on :)

Glad you like them.. WIllson has them too, hes got the all silver ones, whereas mine are in the Blitz Silver with gold B(l)itz.

Seb
26-11-03, 00:50
Fair play about the avatar. I'd only seen pics of the silver ones, which I really liked, but I knew I wanted the polished ones with the gold screws. And I was right :D I don't believe there are many peeps rolling on 03s, are there?

Seb

More than CR's and CX's ;)

They are a nearly a grand more too!

Gaz.

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 00:55
I dont know of many Supras.. Willson and mine.. most tend to go for the Z1 technospeeds which also look great.

I've seen a Red Nissan S14 with them, and that looked great.. and Im sure there are cars out there that I've not seen yet.

Those 6 spoked Racing Harts look cool, theres a red Supra on Supra forums with them I think. Very nice.

Seb
26-11-03, 00:57
Get behind me Satan!! A grand? Shurely shome mishtake? I've been quoted circa 2200 for 18" 03s, and your prices for the same size CXs/CRs are roughly 1800.

Seb

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 00:59
Last time I checked they were about 650 each (ex vat), without tyres. 9" wide at front and 10" at the rear.

Seb
26-11-03, 01:18
I got quoted 2200 with everything bar delivery to my house.

Seb

Gaz Walker
26-11-03, 01:22
2200 is cheap mind, as bobbeh says they are more like high 2600-2800 retail.

1700 for a set of CRs/CXs in 18s, 1900 for for 19s.

Gaz.

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 01:23
2200, wow thats impressive. The tyres alone will cost about 700. So whos supplying these wheels for 1500 quid! :) (not stolen to order are they :sly: )

Seb
26-11-03, 01:42
Lol, Bobbeh, by everything I meant vat etc... but no tyres! 1500, I wish! But 2200 is still very good.

Seb

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 01:49
Ah ok :) Yes. a Very good price.

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 15:17

Volk GT-N's, Volk GT-P's, Volk TE37's, Manaray Hyper Revolutions, & Blitz Z2's

Well I'm a bit upset that Bobbeh has listed almost every Volk wheel without including mine!:p

Attached is a picture of my car with Volk Racing AV3's in 275/35/18.

Its not a very good picture for seeing the wheels but what the hell, i didn't take it. Jive did!!:D

What about Volk GT-C's in Gunmetal ?

Sharpie
26-11-03, 15:56
..

They will look nice against the Red of your car.

Bobbeh
26-11-03, 15:58
Yes Pete, they are v nice too.. oh and Steve, yours are also.. :)

The only problem with Volks is the waiting time - its about 3 months at the moment.

Some of them are worth the wait though :)

I like the Volk GT-Cs and GT-Ps, the GT-Cs especially, but I'm just not sure. In some ways, in my heart I guess I've already decided on the 03s, but I'm still wavering while I wait for the cash.

Gotta be split rims, always wanted them, AFAIK split-rims are only lacquered only on the centre so you'll need to look after the rim part religously. I've given up on my 3-piece rims, and at over 800 to restore them just so they can go again, who can blame me.

Seb
27-11-03, 00:52
Which wheels did you have? And how did they get damaged, or was it just wear and tear?
