Wheels are a hugely personal choice, and that’s why we couldn’t bring you just one overview of our faves because we’d all have a big falling out! So here’s part one of our FC Favourite Wheels, and this month Fast Car magazine editor Slim Jules shares his thoughts…
I have bought my fair share of wheels over the past 15-years; in fact my garage is currently home to three sets of hoops, including a custom set of 3-piece 3SDMs. But what are my favourites wheels of the now? Well, I’ve narrowed them down to these 5-choices, which I think covers most of the market, from base model hatchback to high-end supercars…
Anyway, here’s five of my faves!
Radi8 r8cm9, from £696 (set)
We all have our favourite wheel brands but even in their respective ranges they’ll be a couple of offerings that just aren’t your cuppa tea, but this can’t be said for me and Radi8 wheels, I love all their offerings, especially the r8cm9 we have here. The only downside is that they don’t offer all the finishes on all of the available fitments, especially for BMW owners like me, but there’s a much bigger choice for the VAG fraternity.
