    They look very nice maybe just go a little lower, other than that this is really starting to turn into a lovely looking car. Cool

    I run a 215-35 on a 9.5 and it's popping

    I'd run a 225-40 on 10's,

    Nice wheels and nice car, keep up the good work

    Thanks peeps, the 18's will be up for sale soon [plug]. It will be going lower (especially the rear), this was one of the main reasons for going with 17's...

    Will, i think some 225's would go on there well, but i cant find 225/40's anywhere, i can get 215/40's or 215/45's too...but i think they'd be a bitch to fit...and i dont know if id feel too safe on them...but i dont know...decisons, decisions...

    Well....i got my tyres fitted on saturday, more stretch then i expected tbh! Ended up opting for some 215/45/17's as 225/40/17's are virtually non existent.

    Mounted em up on the car yesterday to see how they look...and now im not sure if i like it. Dont know if i should keep the ASA's or not and just get it lower. (it will be going lower regardless of which wheels i decide to keep on)....whats everyones opinion?

    to be honest dan i'm undecided about them, but i do honestly think you will have bother with the law and that pokeage/stretch, will and jen have both had bother lately

    they do however look good. i may be blind but apart from the extra poke, i can't really tell that much difference from the ASA's, infact if you hadn't have told me i may not have noticed!!!

    i think you should use the 17s for shows and have some sensible 18inch 18x8 rs6 reps for daily use Wink

    I know it can get you into a bit of bother, spent a good few hours reading the bitching going off on pistonheads about tyre stretching the other night. If i do keep em, i wont be using them daily thats for sure. Ill just keep them for shows and meets, but then thats where coppers are quite likely to turn up as a few have found out before...so im a bit undecided about that part aswell! Ill decide at weekend i think....

    Im not sure about RS6's. i like them, but wanted something either in 17" (S3, TT etc wheels) or some more rare 18"..like A8 fat fives, or some unknown wheels that you get on A6's (dunno what they're called)...even some merc wheels if i can find some in the right offset at the right price. But some RS6's in gunmetal might look alright! Shocked

    I know, but the 235's would be hitting the arch over every little bump and i wouldnt be able to lower it how i want. Im hoping they will look better once its lower. I spent 4 hours polishing one of the wheels tonight and its still not perfect! Its gonna be a while till they are done i think.....

    I think im gonna go for some 205/45's for the front, and get 10mm spacers rather than 15mm ones on at the moment and it should look a lot better. It looks 10x better lowered more with them on too.

    So..i fitted the front tyres today and got them on the car...and removed the rear height adjusters so its as low as it will go, well its just a little off the bump stops, so its real bouncy.

    Excuse the crap phone pics, my camera ran out of charge!

    I was wondering how people can run so low with wide wheels without it rubbing on the arch and without air ride? Do you put up with the bouncy ride on bump stops? Use stupidly stiff springs? Or just let it rub on the arch? Is there any special trick to it that im missing?
