Lol, i wouldnt put any other wheels on my KX3 to be honest. First set of OEM wheels i have really and i mean REALLY liked!!
Most of the time when i have had other cars, MINI, 330ci convertible and so on i have changed the wheel's inside the first month.
Unfortunately not- the car is a company car, and our list contains the KX-2 only, with its puny 17" wheels. I can sneak on KX-3 wheels as they are OEM and to be honest no-one would notice. However aftermarket would be obvious and isn't something I could do.
I pay £250 per month in company car tax for the 3 years I have the car. That is the same as some people's loan amounts- so what if I don't 'own' the car in the technical sense- what difference does it actually make?
The difference is I don't pay for fuel, road tax, insurance, servicing or repairs and after the 3 year period I choose another car.
Plus, I can then sell the alloys and get some more for the next car.
I did the same as you Meenrod - had fully expensed Volve C70 T5 [fuel, maintenance etc] but didn't like the wheels so put my own ones on and then replaced with originals when handed back - a 3 yr old car without any kerbed alloyslooked impressive !!
Unfortunatelythe150K miles I put on it meant theywere virtually the only originalparts that hadn't been replaced!!

Meanrod - as people are waiting 10 plus months to get a Sportage they are not likely to have any spare wheels. You would of course increase your emissions an fuel consumption. The KX-2 wheels are ok and no where near puny. Apparently th 18" wheels are less forgiving on our crap potholed roads!
