Loving the car. Wheels look nasty though.

17s on an R5 is way overkill.  :shock:

hey mate,very nice car ,and defo the black wheels look the best,they dont look as big as 17s, fill the arches nicely,personally i run 16s,they recommend 15s is the biggest you go for handling reasons,what your future plans mate?
