New Wheels

Thought I'd post some pictures up of my new wheels before they have my MPSC+'s put on them this afternoon.

I got these on last week, ideally smoother them in sealent as once there on they get dirty very quickly and it shows on the black.


Did you get them off Chris?

These are replicas I suppose as OEM have great finish ?

If so I hope these are good replicas as the lacquer comes off the front face after some time as with my M6 replicas on my E46 - had to repaint them and looked daft !
Hope you do not experience any problems ! Looking great btw !!!

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think the front is actually lacquered, looks more like a diamond cut finish.

Wheels that have been machined still need to be lacquered. They would last no time otherwise.

Yeah got them from Chris.

So sealant rather than wax or both?
