I just felt like a proper arsehole telling the buyer he couldn't have it anymore...

Still, rather that than regret selling it and struggle to get one just as good in the future if I want to restore it back to stock...

I love the Kosmics on my bus Dude, have you looked at SSP at their re-pops? Do they do them in 5 x 112?

I'm truly surprised no one opted for the Empi 5's... In terms of which suits my bus the best I was thinking these... Cosmics are a close second albeit they are JBW wheels... The empi's are SSP...

Thanks for your opinions

I like 5 spokes on a bus, nice unfussey wheel, which suit a nice clean look.
Gas burners (good ones)
Cosmics

brm's no way

i know turtle backs are pretty rare and all but, i'm not keen..

there are lots of 5x122 wheels available...you could look further afield..

or even adapters, you can run what you want Wink
