    New wheels

    Bout bloody time.
    These has been sat in my lost for about 4-6months waiting for me to get my ass in gear and get tyres.







    I got some caps to fit over the bolts to make them look a bit better. I'll fit them when I take more pics.



    I'll get some better pics later.

    Added some bolt caps to the bolt but the ones I bought don't fit the locker.
    Any one got any ideas?

    Before


    After


    Little bit of a stretch.


    And a bit of a poke.

    Cheers lads.

    I can't make my mind up on them at the moment, its either the wheels or ride height.

    Really like that. Adds a little bit of "vip" class to your avant.

    I'll think about it.
    I've just put all fresh suspension on her.

    Any ideas on the locker?
    I need to hide it or make it look like the rest with the caps on.
    hmmm

    can you use an Audi locker? The come with their own caps.

    What tyres are they? they look a bit thin?

    What suspension is on it? Set of eibach springs would probably drop it a tiny bit but still retain all the comfort.

    They are Audi lockers and I bought a set of audi caps with locker caps but they don't fit.

    They are Koni's.
    I guess I could look for lower springs and keep the shocks.

    The tyres are 225/40.

    The original pics was taken about 2mins after the wheels was fitted.
    I assume they would/will need time to settle back down to original ride hight.
    I'll try and park it in the same bay tomorrow and take some more pics of it settled.

    The car feels like its on massive rims. lol
    I'm aware of the size difference but I never drive fast or quick, so I don't really notice it from that side of things.

    I think they are 35, I can't remember.

    I know about the drop. everyone keeps saying. lol
    But at the moment I'm not willing to spend £1000 on coilies but I am contemplating cutting the springs or look for lower springs to go with theses shocks.

    You cant realistically run much lower than 25" without compromising the ride quality.

    24.5" at a push but you'll start scraping on things around that point.

    To be honest I doubt very much I will lower it much more.
    I don't want to lose the ride quality and its a nasty slope going to the drive way at home and the ramp on and off the ferry and not very good.
    Buses have to raise their buses up to get off at low tide.
