steel wheels alloy lookalikes

Post by james butler » Sat Mar 29, 2014 12:52 am

i noticed an astra at work that has 5 spoke STEEL wheels that at first glance look like alloys, for some reason (maybe insanity) i really like the look of the and was wondering if i can get something like them made for a rocco?
there is a company called bullet wheels that does snazy steel wheels but dont do 5 spokes.
any know anywhere that does anything similer?

I thought there was a vauxhall one that's 4 stud, but I can't find a reference to it. You'd want spacers due to the high offset anyway, so they might as well be adapters.

These guys:

look like they'll make a set of 4 for £70. (no experience of them - but sounds cheap to me!)
