Anyone tried these on their ST205? Given the car comes with 3 spokes as standard, these might be a 'cool' alternative but sticking with the three spoke idea? I mocked up something quickly to give an idea...I think they might just work...views?

Doesn't look dreadful - I wouldn't like to say whether they would look good in the metal or not.

It would certainly be distinctive! I must say that I've found a lot of aftermarket alloys are quite soft and assume shape of a 50 pence coin after hitting a few potholes, speedbumps and kerbs. I stick with motorsport spec wheels now even although there's normally a weight penalty unless you can afford forged wheels.

Looks quite decent in the pic, even though i generally don't like 3 spoke alloys on a car this size. Nice colour too.

I am actually swinging to a yes based on that picture!

Peter - did you just cover the original rims when pasting? Are they 17" or 18"?

They cover my wheels exactly so would be 18s Mike

Hmmm do I do it!

Well they don't look too bad, I actually think they work well. what about another famous 3 spoke from ADVAN.
