OR am i missing something...

Re: Wheel fitment assistance

I'm happy to say it's my daily! I do about 200 miles a week. Well I definately can't afford full suspension work atm, let alone spending 1500 on the best coilovers. I don't make much money and am not expecting to have a perfect car with my limited funds, I'm just trying to find a way where I can't g...

Re: Wheel fitment assistance

Re: Wheel fitment assistance

So what do you think I should do? Hold off and buy coilovers later? I was concerned about the look of it on bigger wheels and standard ride height, thought it might end up looking a bit daft? Maybe wrong though

Re: Wheel fitment assistance

I think ive sorted the tyre situation. The toyo r1r wouldn't go down to the 40 profile in the 205's (I've gone a bit narrower as they should still fit safely and are easier to get hold of) so I've gone to the falken ze914 tyres 205 front 215 rear. (I think that 10mm difference is pretty close consid...

I carefully drive home and get out and have a look and all 5 of the spokes of my rear driver's side wheels have completely sheared! Like the hub of the wheel is loose from the barrel! :shocked: seriously dodged a bulle...
