They are stock silver and going to be OEM titanium to match the Rotors on car now. Very hard (almost impossible) to find R8 V8 replicas in titanium finish that are 8x18 5x112 ET45 and 57.1mm bore.

Good deal that on 225's. Went the used route and have a set of four 235/40 TS830P XL 95v's with 6mm on 2 and 7mm on 2 for £75 per tyre delivered. Should pick them up in the colour of my choice with tyres fitted early next week.

New tyres can't come fast enough

The conti's are like driving on oiled blocks of rubber when they are cold

To hell with it, can't wait until the C5 turns up next week so as the wife is out with the pink slip a couple of coats of Autoglym Extragloss Protection have been applied whilst watching the Italian Job and they'll be going on tomorrow with pics to follow once I have put the summer wheels into storage and washed the car.

Looks good Dave. Got mine on today but no time to take pics after changing over the wife's winter wheels on her A2, cleaning and decontaminating 8 wheels and then drying them down and packing up / storing in the loft.
