It is strange, they look quite "flat" and almost like a photoshop :? Maybe if they had some contrasting areas like the Speedwell or Dunlop alloys..

They look SO MUCH better against the almond green though.

wasted so gloriously.

After restoring a set of MK1 Cosmics & then managing to find some vaguely 60's looking Dunlops to go on them, I couldn't wait to get them fitted yesterday evening.

WHAT A WASTE OF TIME!

Stuck them on, OK I knew they would stick out a bit, but I didn't expect them to look so duff :oops:

Bitterly disappointed, I pulled them off again & went back to Rosepetals.

;) Much better Mark, :roll: Rosepetals are always much better :roll:

Think it needs the contrast of the black centres on the rose petals to lift the grey, Mark is right there's to much grey with the Cosmics

I agree it looks terrible with those cosmics on it..........A nice set of Std 4.5 'S' steel wheels in black with hub caps is what that needs............
