right 7X14 Excellent! thanks m8 (y)

yep SERIOUS and i mean serious archwork for those, As kritip says you will be pulled left right and centre without work, thats if you even get them on in the first place.

B_3ybo isnt a member based in UK, they have different rules and regulations over in Europe, one of the reasons they can pull off the euro look better than most of us.

Think you should give this a bit of serious thought IMO i suspect not a lot of thought has been put into it

...but if your from the uk, they would/should never pass the mot, they stick out loads at the back....you'd need some serious arch work.

I though his were 7x13 though?

7x15 (width x diamter ;)) is possible with no arch work on a Sei with 195/45-15 tires as seen here, but I'm at a loss as far as spacers go. It would require a bit of experimenting.

7x14 (ET15 at the front, ET21 at the rear) is more or less the norm when modding here in Denmark. 6x14 is the best size if you want the easiest fit.

yes but are you allowed to have wheels out past the bodywork?
in the UK we are not allowed wheels protrudiing past the bodywork

No we aren't. 7x15s fit, but 7x14 is no problem with the right offset. There are seldomnly trouble ahead, unless you go for 8" in width.

7x14 front
8x14 rear

8" is a no-go, but 7" is a snug fit right on the limit.

I am a bit unsure of whether it should be offset 15/21 at the front/rear or rear/front, though. :bang:

Taking into consideration that the Sportings run spacers up front then the larger offset should be rear.
