    Come on Pharkus time to get Spartacus !!
    I've just seen Jig's wheels and have been left speechless. Most people would get turned on by the look of the wheel, how classic it is, colour, how light hey are, how big etc. I'm blown away by just how easy those look to clean!!!

    As mentioned before, I am very close to a $1,000 gift voucher from AMEX so could possibly fund a large portion of my wheels via this.

    Ha finally Jig - looking very sharp !! Can't complain about the wheel weight. LIGHT !
    So I gather they are yours, yes ? I do recall Thomas saying they were going to post pics of finish product.

    Can't wait to touch them

    OK. Anyone know of a design similar to Jig's that are around the $2k mark but still good quality. Looking for 18 x 8.

    Thanks Steve. I will have to look and see what state my OEM Dunlop Sport Maxx is at. I dont do a whole lot of kms driving and I have only clocked 16K kms. If there is enough thread left, I will just swap them over to the new wheels. If not, I have 3 tyre choices below in order of preference.

    1. Michelin Pilot Sport 3
    2. Continental CS3
    3. Yokohoma Advan Sport

    You can Pharkus. After my Work VS-XX, the classic style of this wheel is perfect. EAsier to clean and makes the wheel look bigger. I also chose this classic 5 spoke Wheel because my brakes will be replaced by Brembo's 6pot BBK which will show up nicely. You are reducing unsprung weight on the car by 22Kgs. That is significant and can easily equate to better performance. Same with the BBK. It will reduce 10Kgs off compared to the OEM calipers and discs. So in total 30Kgs of weight saving.

    Hi Frenchie: That is what the wheels is going to look from a design standpoint. The finish of the wheel is Satin Matt Black however and I am not sure if that pic is that finish. I will PM you once it arrives so that we can both gawk at it at Ramspeed.
