    Lol I ended up buying a set off eBay last night, got to get some custom made adaptors though at £260 15mm rear and 25mm front to get them to fit.

    It will be a couple weeks before I get them on the car as the set I bought need a refurb but luckily for me the guy who bought my Bentley wheels owns a wheel refurb company and he still owes for them so he's going to do them for free for takin the p1ss with payment, also got to wait for adaptors to be made for me and minimum size adaptor is 18mm so will poke a bit on the back with the big 10j wheel on :)

    Just got my tyres fitted onto Daggerits old alloys (cheers Dan!), looks like the car suspension may need lowering a bit :(

    That's what happens when you fit 19s strange isn't it you would think the arch gap would close but it doesn't it's the opposite lol nice wheels though. I'm going to have to buy some smaller springs for my coilovers to make my new wheels look rite haha the joys of modifying.

    By my calculations compared to my old 18" it should have closed the wheel arch by 5mm, but also make the car taller by 5mm also.

    My missues Yaris has a lower ride height than mine, but a bigger wheel arch gap haha

    Nevermind me, to me it actually looks ok in real life, just doesn't look right in the pictures sometimes lol think I will leave it as it is

    I noticed that just after getting my wheels changed over the arch gap looked massive, settled down after a day or so though so you may still have a lower ride soon. :)

    Haha I hope so! If not then I'll leave it as it is as it looks ok for now, may lower it and remap after my warranty expires which will be in 2 years time... a loong wait!

    Hope it does too! :)

    I know the feeling, hard to weigh up destroying your warrantee versus more power and a lower car. ;)

    Bit more wheel test fitting today with my new wheels went well, nice and flush with 25mm adaptors on the 9J wheel (front) and 18mm adaptors on the 10j wheel (rear).
