got to be honest mate the rear wheel somehow looks a little... 'off'. Not sure what it is, possibly the angle the pic is taken from?

Hmm I see what you mean. Will check that out. Suspect it is the pic angle though

You'll be pleased to know that not only did I bring her to work today, but I also checked the rear wheels :)

I think it is an optical illusion. Wheels are straight but the style is concave, with the rears being even more concave than the front. :)

So I took a punt on these Rimblades, what with the new rims and all. I think they went on pretty well. :D

So over the weekend I fitted some smoke film to the foglights and the corner lenses. Not 100% sure if I'm keen on it, but we'll see.

Also, finally gave it a good clean...the first since new wheels went on :D

O great ... I mean ooooh goody more pictures of your car cleaned again .... only joking love the smoked lights I tried that on my GT but cos the glass is slightly domed it wouldn't stick properly so what did you use ?
As for your ''rim'' protectors .. I think I would be more concerned about how far out the spokes are and what would happen if you brushed against a kerb , you could always try putting the proper size tyres on for a 10'' wheel that might help :-) :-) (did I mention I've got a pair for sale ?? )

Have been looking at these wheels for my Car as well. Not sure alloy or black though, either way been searching for photos with them fitted and voila!!
They look great by the way

What sizes are they Mike? 8.5 and 10 I'm guessing

Yes you did, but these tyres have tread, and to be fair I don't tend to park up next to a kerb that often.

According to the interweb 275 are ideal for a 10" wheel: http://www.tyresizecalculator.com/tyre- ... calculator

Cheers mate. Yes, 8.5 upfront and 10 at the rear. I have a contact at AXE now, so let me know if you need help sourcing. I know these were the last set of Satin they had in our size. I struggled to find them in stock anywhere, but AXE themselves.

That would be great Mike, thanks. Will let you know how I get on. Got a few other 'mods' planned as well (only subtle - hoping to keep with the Bullitt's (subtle) look!!)
