    Wheels are Team Dynamics Equinox 8x18 front and 9x18 rear, opinions please? I think after fitting them I might go for 9's all round as it may look better.

    very nice - do you have spacers with these as well? - they come out to the arch really well.

    front wheels are 8x18 ET25 and the rears are 9x18 ET35. The fronts sit the same as a normal wheel would with 10mm spacers as I altered the offset. The rears are running 20mm spacers although I may swap them to the front and order another set of rims for the rear that will be ET15 then I wont need spacers. I will just wait till the missus ends up kerbing the front wheels (its inevitable!!) then have a blazing row about her terrible driving and convince her to buy me two new wheels which will be ordered for the rear then swap the rears to the front.

    I thought that with a 4WD system wether thats haldex or not that it's not good advice to run different sizes of wheels???

    Maybe i'm wrong.

    Looks nice, bet your pleased!

    unless the roling radius is the same u shouldnt run different width wheels, alot of tt owners have had problems.

    Different width wheels and same size tyres will be ok, the Haldex will only kick in with a difference of 1.5 degrees rotation between front and rear axles in motion, so a small difference in rollin radius(say worn tyres front/rear) will not effect it.

    The tyres are 225/40/18 Dunlop SP Sport 9000's all round, the car has been lowered using an Eibach Pro-Kit. I will post some bigger pictures later.
