What is chavvy?

IMO its when your item shouts the brand either through dramatic design or just a label which is made to be showed off with, eg; burberrys, lois vuitton colours, visible brand names to impress others, you get the idea.

Chavs cannot be discreet, hence the closer to discreet you are, the further from CHAVIFIED you are, chavvy and discreet are like black and white, complete opposites!!

The first set of rims are CHAVVIFIED, they are shouting "read this, i have momo wheels which cost a lot"
the second ones are more subtly branded..

Them rotas are Niiice but has anyone seen the Kei d2's in gunmetal grey??

Best looking rim money can buy IMO!!! (can someone add the pic for me, dont know how to do it :-(

Them rims are just.....................GOWJUS!!!

if they did a 16" in them i would try and get them, 17" aint my cup of tea, too much rubbing, no full locking, forget that :-(

Depends which size you have of them Rota rims, The last thing you want on a smaller rim, ie 16 and below is deep dish as tdeep dish makes a rim look titchy!!

Lucky you we have all theses car washes popping up all over the place as imagine trying to clean them, youll get dirt in all them nooks and crannies :-S

yeah they do look really nice, there like marmite you either love them or hate them, alot of people love them but some of my friends hate them, there 15's which i thought would look really small but they dont at all they look great. i prefer smaller wheels as you can get more lock on them and less rub etc
