    Cheers Scott. I am unsure what coils to go for, 500 is my max so perhaps some decent budget coilies, but unsure what brand!? I seen your thread, looks nice dropped low, get some alloys and your onto a winner!
    Im the same, want my tyres and coils now!!

    Yes warren, i will be going for Falkens, either 225s or 215s, not sure but dont want to go too low, 60mm drop max.

    You want 215 to avoid rubbing, got some cheap Nangkangs if you want them.

    not shooting you down Nathan, but daws if you arnt going too low i would stick with 225 as they sit really nice have have less stretch and more tyre contact pluss most important with the screws removed i have no rubbing at all

    Ok I believe nath has 225 available aswel.
    Yeh I'm just undecided what to choose as I do like a big stretch which I would obviously get a better one on the 215s then?

    Warren can I ask what coilovers you are running?

    Yeh I had a look on that thread. I'm thinking about just getting budget coilies for the time being.
    Will def go for 215 then as I like the stretch and don't want any problems when I lower it.

    It doesn't matter now, as you have 215s, but yes Falkens as well.

    You talking to me mate or referring to the alloy size on that pic?

    It's abit quiet at the moment, going on holiday shortly so still haven't got any coils or tyres yet...I have my tax due at end of month and my mot in the middle of June, so going to save for coils in between that...
    BUT my tyres on standard alloys are possibly worthy of a fail on mot due to tread, but I don't want to get mot done to find out it fails due to the tyres. So I may just get the tyres for the speedlines sorted before mot to save me wasting money for the standard alloys that will be coming off soon!!

    Will be de wipering at some stage this week.
