When you match the color white on the wheels as the rest of the car it will look better. 2) There are much better look mesh wheels out there... 3) The combination of the laaarge black trim, and the contrast of the white/black, makes the wheels look rather small and out-of-place on the rather 'large' Clubman.
Here. this will help.

LOL He asked ME directly for MY opinion, so i gave it to him. Whats wrong with that ? I guess i need to including more rainbows and unicorns in my opinion next time ?

I know my car isnt badass, or anywhere close, and i am not offering it up for critique of its visual impact either. Besides, i am on generic one piece wheels lol.

Yes, I know they're rotas and some people have a hate-hate relationship with them, but the design is what I like.

I'm honestly not sure what to price those wheels at because of the fill and redrill job. The general rule of thumb is that you don't redrill wheels that have recessed/raised backs like your rs wheels are. You see how each lug hole out back is surrounded by recessed aluminum? It becomes significantly more dangerous/less-trusted when you tamper with the original engineering of the center of the wheel.
