    Which tire should I use? 18

    Front 18x8.5 R 18x9.5 on bagged car? Before I had 225 40 I believe, rear was stretch quite decent so front wasnt.

    Also I'm trying to refurbish my OZ futura and I can't seem to think of a color I want to paint the centers. It's going on a ibis white and currently it's just stock silver color. I'm thinking of white or black? Hmmm

    Really you want 225/35/18 or 215/40/18 on the back brother! Thats what Luke is running on his Alphards.

    ouch... See i think its worht it if say youre bringing over a set of rare BBS or something alike, But to spend £550 in shipping for a set of wheels which only cost £500 seems a bit stoopid!!! agreed? i mean Helios are worth doe here so its different. Them Bremmers are always going to be worth £400-600... Hmmmmmm

    what other wheels out there are 19x8??? with the right offest to clear a BBK?

    Lmao! Yeh i think its going to be tight with my CH's... it looked pretty tight in there with the S3 brakes!! Cleaning wheels is gonna be almost a wheel off job!!

    Nath, what is it that will give me brake clearance? is it offset or wheel width? or combo of both?? gonna see how it goes with the 18's but if they are a problem then might have to go 19! never thought id say that.. I know it will look a lot more BALLER though... see the main reason for this is i dont like running a spacer but untill it goes onto coils i need them to give it a bit of stance.. i also have to rn a minimum 3mm spacer with the BBK + 18 CH...
