Give me a shout if you want a deal..
May be in touch about these if I order a set of OZ Aleggerrita HLTs.

225s too wide!?

remove locator pins from all 4 corners

i have 215/40/17. 225's will fit yes, but on my -20mm drop the 225's scrubbed on bumps.

i need to drop another 10mm i think...gaps bigger than i like it tbh
at what point & with what wheel/spacer/suspension, inc bump stops, combination did you try 225s please?

I've read your thread a couple of times.

Nice exhaust.

Hey well done Vincebio...VERY swish indeedy. Great GREAT look for the car but I feel that it now needs to be lowered somewhat, say around 1" or 1.5"...?

Intense effort but at the end of the day a job rightly done and deserving of a nice Brew.
