235/35 up front and 265/30 at the back. Most common option for 8.5" & 9.5" set up.

What happened to getting the 359's Olli or is that what you've gone for

Was just asking what best size to get for an 8.5 front 9.5 rear setup is? Dont want huge chunky tyres but dont want too low either.

Yes mate, that's the tyre sizes I have but my wheels are ET34 front and ET37 rear, you shouldn't have any problem being 7mm further out on the rear on 265's if you keep the ride height as is.

I do fancy mine painting but I was going to go for the same shade as my standard MV3's. The 359's are off now for the winter and ready for doing. Where are you taking yours to? The paint shop next to Paul's place or elsewhere? I need to find somewhere I can get mine done.

Cheers

I'll be getting my dad to do my wheels as he owns a bodyshop and hes just done his the same.

Paul (and my dad when hes not doing them himself) uses a place down in nottingham that do a really good job.

http://www.thewheelspecialist.co.uk/...ns/nottingham/

There about 50m away from my dads workshop and do a full strip down and respray etc. not sure on prices but id expect around 50 a wheel.

Theres also a paintshop called voodoo paintwork who paul gets to do alot for him. Dont know about those next door.

Busy week next week so i probably wont order tyres until friday.

Ok so i tried my new wheels on last weekend to make sure the et30 rears fit.







Will i get away with 255/30 rear on the 9.5 or will they be mega stretch?

Thanks to CMWheels for the super quick delivery and the great after service. It was if chris was watching me. I was stood in the unit with the jack ready to try the wheels and he dropped me a text asking if i'd fit them. Freaky lol!
