    ST24 & ST200 looking for v6 capri
    Hi all,.
    As I continue my search for a v6 (Likely to be a 2.8)
    I have been looking at wheels that I might look to fit.
    So far I have to say I like the idea if 280 rims or 13" superlite
    What are your chosen wheels or fav
    Please feel free to show your wheels if you like

    new focus RS is amazing
    seconded --nearly bought some many years back --to swap for my standard 5 spokes --saddest mistake i made --may even splash out now if i can find some at good price.

    As a car designer once said -- There is only one thing that should fill a wheel arch and thats the wheels (TR6 Designer i believe)

    For me it has to be the 7 spoke, I think Capri 2.8 has a very balanced look with the 7x15 Brooklands, but I also like the look of the softline 17" from the Sierra Cosworth

    15" brookie alloys keep the same look on the 2.8i special but look so much meaner! Best wheel by far for any mk3

    Has to be 280 alloys for me all the way. I do like Alleycats on Mk2's but you can't beat Brookie alloys.

    I think it greatly depends on how you style the car. On a standard car then something period(ish) like minilite or weller steelies, but if you change it's appearance much then the door's thrown wide open. Daveyboy's black bite-yer-hand-off job for instance, or if I had a functioning memory, I'd point you at the dark red-oxide coloured capri with a black bonnet sporting a mahousive pair of australian(?) white-centred alloys. I don't really approve of alloys, but these are something else!
    As I say, it all depends on the car they'll be under.
