    Very difficult mate, you know what i think of the tritons, but those nebulas do look good. Think the tritons still edge it for me.

    I remember seeing that pic of the 850 on nebs a few months back.

    Very very tough choice..... I think the wheels on your car at the moment look the best!!

    Affraid I have to say I prefer the Nebs on your colour car... might look different on another colour?

    Why not post up some pics of your motor with the Nebs on smithness? Good comparison then.

    The ONLY reason I would suggest changing from the Tritons to the Nebulas is because the Tritons are no doubt a git to clean other than that wheel type and colour combination are perfect. Don't go ruining a perfect looking car, next you'll be asking us what we think of neon washer jets... must be an age thing

    So when you said "Been thinking about changing my wheels from tritons to nebula`s"... What you really mean't to say was I've bought some Nebulas for the car, they look the nuts and don't spoil the overall look of the car and before you all ask I've already given the Tritons to AndysR.. Right?
