Think that would be okay if I had a UK car, but not on JDM, as it's too much of an Irish look IMO.

That looks lovely. As usual I'll be different to everyone else and say that I think the wheel look fine. It would look even better in you painted the calipers white aswell.
Well it's done in time for the Norwich Classic Vehicle Club Show on the 3rd of June so hope to see you there so that I'm not the only MR2 there??

Cheers,
Bod

What exhaust is that Beckie?

Looks spot on, but black or gun metal wheels would finish it off [thumleft]

Good work on making it the best you can Becki.

You are probably very happy with your wheels, but, as there have been a few suggestions, I thought I'd put these in here too.....I'll be going for a set of these when the work is finished on mine....

The exhaust is a Blitz back box with custom piping. I will take a video of how she sounds if people want to hear.

I do have another set of wheels. These.



They could do with a clean up though and even though they are 15s they stick out past the arches and dont really want to put the plastic bits back on.

I would love a set of those Rotas but sadly I have spent all of my money restoring my car.

I'm loving the consistant approach to using purple - even down to the highlight circle in your last photo!

You might want to repaint those wheels purple too?!
