Sorry for the zombie thread revival, even funnier when I saw that I was the last poster.

Ain´t life funny sometimes......I bought a new Dacia Lodgy in December.



What looks like tacky alu wheels are actually plastic covers which extend into covering half the dish.

Lo and behold, under the covers are the same wheels that I found attractive on the Focus three years ago !



I bought a second set and have send them to the paint removal today, after that :

powder coating, they will be my summer wheels.

I think plain silver would be good, or maybe color matching, os is that too naff for this utility vehicle ?

5 of the 7 seats have been removed, now the HUUUGE loading area can take two minibikes

and will also be used as weekend tin tent, 2 meters in length.

These wheels are french origin, I have seen some ridiculous versions, cut-and-weld to 10 inches....

Someone even photoshopped these on a 911:

Well, not these, but the Focus wheels you've posted earlier.

Their 992 is even better:



Quite a lot of deep fake base spec examples in their catalogue: http://xtomi.blogspot.com/search/label/base_spec

Bring back OEM steel wheels!

My friends car, factory original steels with what the Americans call 'poverty caps' or 'dog dishes', on a base spec car with the biggest engine available, one of the ultimate muscle cars.

Not mine, but I always thought that the TR6 did these perfectly.

Refurbished myself to replace the scabby deteriorating alloys on it, £110 posted & a weekend sanding them down & painting. Sold the scabby alloys for around the same price.

To my eyes that looks quite good. Much better than the enormous diamond cut monstrosities and rubber-band tyres they tend to actually come with.
