    Thanks for your help buddy.

    I saw both of those, but I'd rather not run spacers, and the et33 would stick out a little too far no?

    Most other wheels come at et35, I'm surprised the CH don't.

    Awesome, if et33 doesn't stick out from the arch then I'll go for those.

    Any pics of yours buddy for reference?

    Cheers

    That looks awesome buddy - well impressed.

    I think I'll go with the et33 in that case.

    Thanks for your help.

    No worries Danny, cheers!

    The wheels I've got are actually ET45, with 12mm spacers, hence ET33. The standard s-line wheels are ET43 so these are 10mm further out than stock.

    I'd say go for 19"s if you're going to change your wheels... but everyone has their reasons!

    i run et45 with 20mm spacers on the back and 15mm on the front
    they sit perfect.

    Yeah mate, I'm defo going for 18's - had 19's before.

    I do 30k+ a year in my car, and the ride / price of tyres is a killer on 19's.

    Must say, I'm almost tempted to go et42/45 - if I go for 33 then there is no going back, but I can swap spacers till I'm happy on the 45's.

    Decisions decisions.

    Bear in mind the bigger the spacers the more expensive they are. So if you're never going to go less than ET35, get ET35 rims to start with and save yourself £50 on spacers...

    That's very true bud.

    The search for et35's (without blue lip) continues. Ha ha.

    Thanks for your help buddy.
