    I am happy with that if that's 9j my tyres will just have a little stretch then if I am not mistaken

    Hi there.

    You'd end up with a fair amount of stretch but what I needed was as much rubber on the road as we could manage.

    The tyres don't poke out at all and they do clear the arches but it wasn't easy or cheap unfortunately.

    I don't want a lot off stretch though as they are a fairly concave rim I am getting worried now as bought them now new as well lol

    Mines lowered on coilovers so at standard setup you should be fine mate no rubbing
