My New ALLOYS :)

Hey guys just got my new alloys today and im really loving the ride since i got new tyres. I think maybe because the car was sitting around in a showroom for a while not being moved much, the old tyres must have become misshapen.
I think you can also tell ive waxed the car today

Very nice! Drop it, get an mtech kit all around, and get new exhaust tips and you'll be set

I cant drop it unfortunately, one of the reasons i got bigger wheels and slightly taller tyres is to raise it. The roads out here aren't too good and on two or three roads I often use i can just catch the bottom of the car sometimes, no matter how slow im going. This has not happened since i got the new wheels

looks good, imo you should really get some smoked corners and side markers though. White pops out way too much on dark cars. just my opinion though
