All the recent talk and pictures of new wheels got me looking for some gold ones for the Green Machine. I love my current wheels but am lusting after some gold ones (not that I can afford ATM - but maybe some time this year). Usually can't see any I like but came across these

which are currently £379 or best offer on ebay.

Waddaya all think then - worth busting a gut and scrimping and saving for?

Could anyone photoshop them onto my Cat ?

Ian, they would look the nuts mate - if someone could do a photoshop for you - would be good - you'll need to post up a side view of your Coug though.

Tell you what Iain, if you do go ahead with this and before July, I'd be VERY interested in doing you a deal for your exisiting wheels, provided the tyres are still legal. That could give you a good chunk of the money for the new ones...

iain just a thought here what does it cost normally to refurb an alloy especially ones in good nick about £50 a corner i think.wouldnt it maybe make more sense to borrow a members spare alloys and put your exsisting ones in and get them done gold.means you keep the wheels you like and at half the cost.anyway just a thought mate

I'm with Paul on this one - that is a great idea and would only be half the cost or there abouts.

then you basically have new alloys then,i looked into doing my original alloys and they were needing 4 new tyres so was going to work out about £600 to refurb and reshoe but came accross my oz35 for a bargain price so went with that

Sorry about that guys and gals - got called out down the nick just after I'd posted.

Thanks for the photoshop Nancy - got a reasonable idea from that - and gg's (y)

I have thought about having them refurbed Paul but they are composites with steel rims so I don't think that it would work too well but, on the other hand, if I could get a good price for my beautiful Outlaw Magnums then it could work out to a similar sort of price - PM on its way Rich :)

Probably a bit of a pipe dream ATM but reality often begins in dreams innit :geek:
