    Well , BJV dropped my wheels back this morning , and i have just finished putting them on ....

    I am very very pleased with them , i understand some people have had issues with BJV , but i haven't , so i would wholeheartedly recommend them based on my experience .

    They collected them last friday , diamond cut the lips , blast and coat the centres , fit stainless valves , mount my new tyres , balance and delivered back to me today for £230 !!

    Just need to get the facelift valances and skirts now ...... they are on the way .... ;)

    I have just sold some valve caps to Wobbley , but i have another different set that i bought ( that don't fit the AMG's ) ...

    These ...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....m=330257598251&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=014

    They look the business , but just don't fit on the AMG wheels .

    You put the sleeve over your existing rubber valve and then tighten the cap down which holds it in place and it looks like you have sexy stainless valves.

    Interested ?

    I had some stainless stems on my styling IIs and some kids pinched the matching caps, never did find some caps that fitted properly :(
