They can also ruin a car.

I was never happy with the gold wheel on my car. Liked the wheels, not the colour.
Got them changed to black and all is good again :)

Agreed that the alloy has to look right. I'm not a great fat of really large rims although that is the current trend. I see no performance reason to go over 18 inches and for most things a 17 inch rim gives the best weight and steering characteristics.

I prefer 5 spoke or double spoke wheels on most cars, Audi LeMans style.

Defo I've been looking at 16" bbs alloys but my current car is a vw polo 1.2 tsi so not a performance car at all
