    After what felt like the longest winter ever, we finally had some sun in England today.

    I managed to get the some washing and polishing done and also fitted one of my carbon cam pulley covers.

    I ordered a single 205/45 tyre last week to test fit on the new Emotion wheels, just to see how it would clear the arches. I managed to get the tyre fitted today and then bolted up to the car when I got home.



    These wheels sit 8mm further inboard than the Equips, so I figured I could use the 205's instead of stretching a set of 195s on them. They fit perfectly, exactly as I had hoped.









    Now, I know I brought these to use during the winter months, but... damn they look good. A completely different look for the car, I think I still prefer the Equips though. What do you think?

    I prefer the Emotions. I always felt like Equips belong on boxy 80's cars.

    Much prefer the equips. The fact that the emotions don't have a lip or anything make the wheel seem big and disproportionate to the rest of the car. I do however love the bronze/black colour combo

    This! Bronze and black is a fantastic combination.

    Totally agree with you Steve and Pete, The Emotions look bigger on the car because of the lack of lip to them, also the face of the wheel is smaller on the Equips.

    I still definitely prefer the Equips, they suit the car much better in my opinion. The large polished lip and machined face really brings out the small chromed OEM pieces on the rest of the car. The style of them works nicely the early 90's theme I am going for too. I have always like the Emotion wheels and haven't seen any in bronze on a black NA before, I was sure I would like them, but was very pleasantly surprised when I fitted one up.

    The other big thing I have noticed when changing them over is how much lighter the Equips feel compared to the Emotions, considering they are the same size wheels. By no means are the Emotions heavy, but never really appreciated how light the Equips are.

    Any way, we are back on the Equips now and ready for summer!

    This old guy votes for the Equips, Sexy!

    The Emotions makes it look like a track car waiting for some aero, a single racing seat, and a gutted interior!
