Cool Going gangsta for winter....

From pic 1 (summer) to pic 2 (winter)... Whatever your view of Y spokes, I'm really pleased with them - I think they look great - the finish is a gunmetal powder coat

Thanks to @mrhaggis for the wheels. Nice chap BTW.

Y-Spokes are an awesome looking wheel. Look even better in that colour!

Good job

Thanks all. I like the Y's, but they are definitely a Marmite wheel.

Marmite is a yeast spread in the UK and ran an advert campaign that you either loved or hated it some years ago....

Yup, works very well actually... they look great - the powder coating is a beautiful finish. What was nice was the guy fitting them thought they looked even better than the originals... And don't worry, I'll look after them - the finish is too good to go anywhere near any kerbs

Thinking the 19's give a slightly softer ride, but it has not been cold enough for them to prove themselves as cold weather tyres yet. Having said that, I definitely feel more confident with them on - I've seen a couple of comments around that the Conti sport contact 3's they are replacing are pretty poor when it's cold and wet...

BOOM!

Given what I'm having done to the car at the moment it'll be more like growl and supercharger whine
