Yes the black grill was a nice easy cheap mod that looks good. Cost the grand total of £3.49 and i still have half a tin of satin black left

Glen, i agree its a sickening feeling kerbing wheels but my missus is surprisingly immune to it  :drive:

Thanks Si, i have split the grills and done the centres satin black and think it looks much better. The other job has been to remove the mudflaps

Hopefully getting my wheels back from refurb on monday but until then i am running the refurb shops 22" loan wheels :puke:

Paul
I like that look tbh lol

To be honest, if they were proper staggered 22s i may be more enthusiastic but the rear wheels looked to narrow in the wheel arches. Unfortunately the roads around here are so bad that i know they wouldn't last long :(

Seen these online and quite like them

‘*’ marked tyres could be an interesting “challenge” for those.  I do like the design but the roads around me would wreck them  :(

Thats the problem around here. On my discovery i swapped from 20" wheels to 18 just to improve the ride over the potholes  :(
