most seem to get away with it - depends on what they are like in your area - they can make you remove them on the spot but apparently only after testing them with their machine?

not sure what the fine is though if you have them? and if you are caught reoffending then not sure if they come down on you heavily. mmmm what to do hey?

went for a midnight tone as it is on the pentagon website. looks great. alright snowy, the tints are a good job like, the guy jamsie who owns Carnology if you have ever heard of it done them. i got 'em for £80 but i knew him through friends, he normally charges £120. i would get pics up but we have had pissy weather as you know, so i wanna wait till its good before i snap 'em. i was gonna go for new RS bumpers but again im gonna have to leave it a while. for sprayin' or anything costum really you could try SQ Design. they done my friends boot install, a bit drastic for a corsa but you get the idea. there pretty good.

my friends gimme a name of a cheap but good sprayer who used to work for wrights accident repair, again i dunno if you've heard of them but there really good. havn't been down to him yet cause im gonna get my wheels first, but ive been told he needs a bit of a kick in the ass to make sure he's workin' but ive seen his jobs and there peeerfic!

im thinkin of goin for these babys at 18" what you think...

I think the spokes should "go all the way" to the rim-edge, of not they look small even in 18"

The rim looks (IMHO) to bemwe-ish.
Were I you, I'll look for something 'softer'.
