    opinions wanted!

    hey guys so picked up my mini cooper s alloys in white to go on my blue mk2 zr

    so need to get the centre caps replaced going to get dazzer on the job. looking for suggestions of what style/color to go for what about carbon vinyl? blue silver or blue white or silver and black?
    will be replacing my front badge with the same color too

    bump strip decals to replace the fading originals. should i just go for silver with the ZR in blue or white with the zr in blue.
    will be keeping my silver straights which i may put back on the car at some point so white might look a it off on the bump strip if i do that?

    open to other suggestions.
    if anyone has photos too....most of the photos here are old and the link is dead

    personally, I'd go body blue with white text for the badges, possibly with a white outline.
    Carbon should be black and real IMO.

    For the bump strips, white with blue lettering would look awesome.
    I'm thinking of doing similar with a black / red theme (and white alloys)

    hmm why red black and white why not just black and whit eor black and red?
    both would look good i think. red probably a big more chavy lol.

    my worry with making the bump strips and badges white is that if i go back to the silver alloys will it look silly? but then again if i have silver and blue with white alloys would that look silly.

    Red and black with white as the car is black with red highlights.

    Black leather with red stitching, red hoses under the bonnet, red tow hooks.
    Running hairpin alloys at the moment, but I'd like the mini wheels.
    I think the white alloys would be a bold contrast, and I have red wheel nuts

    Why not get your straights painted white aswell? lol

    oooh iI havent seen your car for ages, got a pic!? sounds sweet!
    metallic red would look nice on alloys like the red of a coke can.
    i though about metallic purple for mines
    yeah been meaning to get the straights sprayed white for ages but never got round to it (had the car 2 years) then saw the cooper s ones arlight condition alright price. 2 might need new tyres soon though then again so might my straights haha think i've replaced 2 in the 2 years i've had it but not actually measured the tread just know they were pretty good when i bought it.
    but at least this way if i dont like the white i can pop the straights back on.

    the alloys look huge! but i think its just coz they are out of context not being on a car. they are defo 17's

    Haha,
    I haven't got any recent photos as it's been in bits since October time lol.
    If you decide for some strange reason you don't want the Mini alloys, let me know! lol

    so i took the alloys to the station to pump them up today as I was passing. only had time to do 2 of them but neither would take air... any ideas? my mum used the pump to pump up her tyres so not the pum thats broken.
    i read it could be an issue with the valve but what are the chances 2 of 4 wheels would be affected...

    problems already

    Could be the valve centres are loose, if the tyres aren't sealed properly on the bead you'd feel / hear the air escaping.
    Or it could just be a couple of punctures
