A little update here, the wheels are on!

 

My worries were needless, the fit was perfect, I want to thank everybody on here who offered me advice on which offsets and widths to choose, I don't believe the wheels could fit any better.

 

The rears are nice and wide, the fronts are perfect all 4 wheels are flush with the arches and there is zero scrubbing even the fronts DO NOT scrub at all from lock to lock which I was surprised at.

 

Firstly i fitted my new BC coil-overs, surprised at the quality of these, a lot of people say they are junk, so far the ride is quality and the appearance and threads etc look very good.

 

All 4 new ARB links where installed also, we all know how much of a pain those are.

 

They were all lubed up so hopefully I shouldn't get any seizing problems.

I also fitted my UK brakes which have been fully refurbished along with new disks all round, pads and braided lines.

Onto the wheels,

 

I decided to go for Continental SP5 for the tyres, 255 on the front and 295 on the rears, 30 profile all round, perhaps a 25 profile on the rear could have been more pretty but i wanted that extra cushioning over style, i don't think you can really tell anyway.

 

Rear first

Lets not forget the decals of course!

Fantastic :) Well done, those wheels have made the car, really spot on choice.

 

Thanks i knew i needed something special and im glad i went for these ones :)

 

That looks gorgeous. Great choice of colour, kit and wheels, very nice indeed. Well done.

 

Cheers

 

Perfect, facelift lights would go great ;), nothing better than a nice set of wheels.

 

Cheers,

 

I did a photoshop with the facelift lights and i think it took away from the front of the car, i like how bright the UK's are on the front, i think ill be keeping them

Now that looks gorgeous, Top job on the choice of wheels. Car is looking perfect, you must be over the moon.

 

Thanks, I'm certainly happy with the look, I've had a few niggles come up but hopefully they should be sorted in a week or 2.
