Went to take some photos yesterday. It was such a nice evening and the hue of the sunlight was beautiful. Took some pictures of my car as well, while at it. Gotta love the valencia orange. :)

Nice colour, even better than new sunset orange. Those VMR wheels also look awesome.

Wow, yeah, just looked.
Should've done that before. Assumed at that cost that they must have been arranging manufacture themselves so I didn't even bother to look elsewhere. Lesson learned. What a rip!

I noticed the same thing and bought on eBay for a few quid. It’s shocking how much mark-up they are pushing onto customers. It’s a joke! They probably bought as a batch too so probably a pound each if that.

What size tyres have u got to get 9.5J in at the back?

I thought a wheel that wide was a no go on the M-Lites

Michelin Pilot Sport 4S 225/35 R19 at the front, 265/30 R19 at the back. Fitment is tight, but I’ve had no rubbing at all. VMR Europe recommended Hankook EVO2s as they have slimmer side walls, but I wanted proper tyres and took the risk with Michelins.
