Hi,
Re these wheels.

They will adapt to your hubs perfectly and completely change the handling of your car.
The rears catch on the edge of the A frame and you just need to grind some of that off.
You could fit 185 x 60 x 13 tyres (TOYO 888)
You would need to fit adjustable suspension on the rears and use smaller springs 2,25 inch

I can send you some pics of mine if you like.
This set up really makes a difference, unless you want to just cruise :wink:

Ciao

Thanks Gino,
I'd love to try a 'baby' with the +2 wheels at some stage.

But for now I'm happy with the narrow wheels, and no, not for cruising :D but, for lurid 4 wheel drifts :mrgreen:
Its personal - but less grip is more .... for me, fun at road speeds, and on track.

I've got other cars for grip, faster cornering and lap times. But these are at silly speeds, way too fast for hooning on the road. Each to their own I guess, but I'd still like to try someone else's, for another datapoint of experience.

I will take nearest offer on these 5 wheels.
Prefer not to split.
