thanks guys

finally got my tyres and wheels fitted... had a bit of problem because i went to a local tyre shop to do the stretch and they couldn't stretch the 255/30 over a 9.5J! they were like 'oh ur tyres are faulty' so i cut without paying them even though they did the fronts lol... went down to hotline motorsports in harrow and they sorted me out easily... probably gonna move the rear tyres to a 10j or a 10.5j, should be an okay stretch, this is barely noticeable...

ima take some nicer photos when i wash the car and find a good location but here you go:






yes they are replicas but i realised i don't really care if they're reps or not, the car looks great and sits really well! if i don't find my real BBS LM-Rs by show season, i think ima just get some reps if it's flush and wide, im happy! but these are temporary anyway...

no fender rolling required! and i could probably go lower on the rear... but i get a bit of rub in reverse on full right hand down lock which is minor...

need to get aligned soon but for now, i love it

oh and the specs are:
fronts - 19x8.5J et28 with 225/25
rears - 19x9.5J et25 with 255/30

appreciate the kind words guys!


was coming home from a job late late night and had my photography stuff with me so just stopped off at a petrol station to get some nice shots (petrol stations have THE best lighting lol)... only thing is the car hadn't had a wash in about 2 weeks so it was quite dirty...

enjoy!















hope you liked them

i think i can go way lower on the rear but we'll see... i like the nose dive stance....

also might be doing a major purchase soon! it will be the most expensive thing i've bought for the car lol.... just waiting for my funding to come through and then make an offer which i'm pretty sure will be accepted

Nice mate looks wicked under those lights, I've always thought would be a cool place to take some pictures but thought would probably get grief off the attendants and have some inconsiderate bugger ruin the pictures trying to fill up their car....

Look forward to seeing what the BIG purchase is!!

Pics look awesome man!!! Rims are not my cup of tea but perfect for a set of winter wheels. I was thinking you should have got a chrome lip, but to be honest, these will be less maintenance over the hard winter, salt ridden roads. Sooo Great Choice!

Look forward to whats to come!

I am using your pics on my site LiteAngels if you don't mind

hmmm i think tinted indicators would have set it off nicely. But looks better that stock.

Look forward to the special purchase... hope it is a single turbo conversion
