New pics of wheels... as promised

Well they are finally on after a fair bit of work. lol. Shouldnt have to bother any of you about wheel questions any more. . Only Wobbly bolts used in the end, just wobbly bolts. There is a nice gap between the tyre and the arch that is just about perfect so it doesnt rub. The back is just high enough for the exhaust not to touch the ground. And the front is just high enough to miss any bumps, but can still look cool having to slow down for big ones.

So overall im VERY happy with them. Also got a pic of the fog lamps in and on while it was foggy.

So what y'all think. Be honest coz i wanna know if something is just tack, even though ive never got the guts to say it to any1 else.

Cheers. The middle pic was off the screen and just annoying. Its bout the right size. Would it be possible for the picture fairly to enlarge the two little ones to the size of the middle one.

Re: New pics of wheels... as promised

Havent noticed a drop in acceleration...I can still spin it quite easily with full tread. My speedo seems about perfect now, coz i can follow cars through speed cams and my speedo reads dead on 30.

ull notice the acceleration drop when you get on the motorway... wont overtake quite as easily, and it wont like the hills quite as much.

Re: New pics of wheels... as promised

185/55's.

could get 50's but not worth another 230 for a 1.5 cm bigger gap round the edge, not when i dont need a bigger gap.
