Talking Wheel choice poll, and spot the difference game, please join in :-)

As a bit of a wheel horder with the Evo, I thought I'd do the same with my Escort Cosworth . Just wondered what the lovely peeps of Passionford thought of the wheels I've got? Additonally, can you spot the differences between the cars in the following 2 pics?

Click the image to open in full size.

Car as it sits now more or less (it now has different plates, smoked rear windows, black air intake hose, black rear window caps and no alarm stickers)

Click the image to open in full size.

So which do you prefer? I like my 19" Superleggeras, but the Rotas are in my blood as an Evo man, so pleased they made a fitment specifically for my Escort Cosworth (big thanks to Ben@HEL Performance for supplying them and Mike R and Cossymad Chris for sorting the fitment)

I've also included a pic of the 18" Escos wheels I wanted for my car, but apparently fitting big brakes under them is hard due to the offset and design, so no good for my APs


Click the image to open in full size.



And who can spot some of the changes I've made? Make sure you place a vote, and if you choose option 4, suggest what other design you're thinking of


P.S. The car may be for sale soon, as I have another project in mind that needs a large cash injection

18*9 Rota's for me, but in a lighter colour than they are now i reckon, too dark.
Also prefer the indicators coloured in body colour, never been a fan of morrettes on escorts (unless they are white) because of the indicators next to them, not sure on the smoked ones in the bumper and on the wing though (have you done the rears too?) And have you got fog light grills in there in the 2nd pic?

Rotas look the best out of those choices, I hate the 18" escos rims I just don't think they look right

Not a fan of any of those wheels really, but it would be boring if we all liked the same.

The rotas look perfect! On the other end of the scale.... the 18" Escos rims look gash!!!

the 18 escos ones won't take big brakes behind them though, but i think them rims that martins got on his 500, in dark grey, with stickers, would look the business on a red escos

This is the route I was going with the car - a complete lick of paint, full WRC kit and OZ Magnesium wheels....

Click the image to open in full size.

But then decided that would cost a lot, and the car would look ace but still only have 380 bhp, meaning I'd need a mad engine build to go with it

Hence getting it to where it is, and selling it soon

Out of the two pics, the second with with the Rota's, i think the dish on them looks different to the norm, spot on. As for the ultimate wheels for EsCos, i think the 18" Cosworth rims look phit as phuck
Spot the difference..
smoked indicators in the bumpers
rs500 grilles replaced foglights
sidelight lenses colour coded
'rs'(?) badges removed from under side repeaters on wing
different brakes/callipers... how am i doing?!
