Well the wheels have been delivered today. I'm not actually at home so my mate took a few pics on his phone. I'll get better pics from him later. He will hopefully get the tyres on later too ready for them to go on tomorrow when I get back....i'm just praying the bolts I got fit.

The finish is Matt Black center with Ruby Chrome Lip and Drum.

Well we knew they were going to be a bold step... we're not wrong!

Did you get the bolts sorted?

Well about the bolts, I just ordered cone shape (which are for aftermarket wheels) in size 28mm and 33mm, if either are too long then I'll just have them cut.

Just have to see what happens tomorrow evening.....

My S5 is white.....it was a leap of faith when I ordered them, but from the pics of the wheels I think the end result is going to look quite good and different which is what I was aiming to do.

I didn't ask for them because I didn't have them on the stock wheels. if you need them I suggest you contact Vincent and let him know.

Thanks...will hopefully have the wheels on tomorrow night or Friday morning, pics will go up ASAP. My mate is going to send me some better quality pics of the rims tonight so check back later on as I'll post them up when I get them.

I know how you feel, when your buying something worth a lot of money from a different country and when you have never even seen the individual you are dealing with it can be a bit worrying....on more than one occassion I had the thought "what if he takes my money and sends me nothing".

Well as I've recieved my wheels in perfect condition you have got nothing to worry about.

For those interested in the specs:-

The rear wheels are 20x10" and weigh in at approx 15kg and the front wheels 20x9" weigh in at approx 13kg, for comparision the stock wheels are about 18kg each.

Not the lightest forged wheels, but still better than stock.
