New wheels, time for a shoot
« on: August 17, 2010, 07:30:38 pm »
Figured I'd shoot these before I had them mounted up. They're Alpil W12 reps made by RAYS.

Had them shipped in from Japan. They were second hand so I saved a packet, and they were only used the once for an af imp magazine photoshoot. Conti Extreme Contact DWs will be fitted later today. They're 10kgs a pop, so it's a 2kg saving per corner. These also have a much better build quality.

Would love to see the car rimmed up with 19" Monzas

The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

Monte, yes, those are 19"s too. Got them from AK Tuning in the US (when they use to be around). I'm a big Monza fan. Thanks for all the compliments guys. Will have pics with them fitted over the next 2 weeks or so.

Monza's look amazing on Black Gti's  :notworthy: 19" ones are just the cherry on top of the icing IMO  :notworthy: 

Your new wheels will look perfect mate  :happy2:
