Right, as some people here know. I like to show off my nuts.

This picture (pinched from smiffy's gallery.....taa mate :) ) Shows the 16" 5-star alloys (Standard fare on Oz Cooper S) without their (horrible) wheel covers. Personally I think they look 1000% percent better this way.

What does everyone else think ?

:)

(Ps. rich, your right, this is the closest photo of Indi blue that comes close to looking like the real thing.....very very tempted :) )

You've got to keep your nuts covered and protected!:eek:

I too think alloy wheels look better with the nuts exposed, though perhaps its better if they are designed that way rather than the cover left off.

It is one reason I prefer the 7-hole 15" to the 8-spoke 15". Then again, referring to a thread in the Cooper S section, I'm over 35, so for me 15" wheels are quite big enough (for the Cooper anyway). I just think it's a shame they couldn't stretch to 185 or 195 section tyres.

I think it looks more racer-like therefore more aggressive... would probably look better lowered too with wider tires. :)
Now your talking.......
