For this time of year you can't beat trims.

Gunna offer this up, better pics to follow when I don't drive a grey car.

Many ways to skin the 'trim' cat.

Oversided with smaller steels [required attaching devices of some kind aka zip ties]

Correct size with wide steels [should just clip in like they would normally]

and i guess you could do under sized but that might look :wtf:

Yeah good sized ones are hexpensive new or off ebay, i blagged mine off a mate who'd got them with some steels, just hoping one doesn't fall off.

I'd go hunting round your local scrappy / breakers yard / quizing mates who'd changed from steels to alloys etc... someone will have some you can likely borrow / take for free.

Hunt fo trimz yo!
