They latter two pics look very similar to the wheels used on the M600. I like them. Not sure how they would look on the M12 , M400 series though.

They came through Ashley as they do stuff for his race car I think. Given the number of wheels I have in the garage, another set is the last thing I need!

I thought others would be interested hence the post though.

I like them a lot! I think the noble still looks good and hasn't dated so those wheels should work well. Any idea on cost?

The last ones look nice, like the M600 wheels.

Not sure they would suit our cars though.

This is why I wasn't sure about the Speedlines, they're too flat!

I much prefer the speedlines to my compomotives with the deep dish.

The dish makes them look quite small, there's not much clearance for the calipers either so you won't get more than an inch on the front or two on the rears really.

I definitely agree with Deano that they look very like the M600 wheels. And as controversial as this is, I'm not a massive fan of the M600 and I think it looks like it has set of TSW Venoms! (with some powder coating)

Also have to concede that I think about the idea of upgrading my wheels (the speedlines do look good on Duncan's and Craig's) but I think the 3R headlights suit the more modern look better than my front end.

Matt - how much to make my headlights into 3R whilst my slave cylinder gets fixed at some point this winter?

I assume they know how many wheel nuts Nobles have?
