    your best bet is to find some then ask if they'll fit a the possabilties are endless so its a little long winded for me to sit and list them.

    I will say get some that are 5x112 offset, you can get other wheel fitments but then you need adapters aswell and its not aleways worth the hassle, your offset depends on the wheel and its ET if its not enough you can use spacers to push it out, if it too much you can have the inner wheels hubs machined down but you need enough clearence behind the spokes for your brake calipers.

    Try and find some 8.5 or 9j 19" alloys with an offset between ET35 & ET45, post up your specs and ill tell you if they'll fit.

    Yes mate those will go on nicely, the spokes could be a little close to the calipers at ET45 but if they rub either file down the corner of your caluper or get spacers. 15mm hubcentric spacers will look sweet on the rear, 10mm's for the front.

    Pics when there on!

    No worries, I might have a set of 15mm hubcentric spacers for sale by next weekend, there only a week old.

    It depends if my tyres scrub after i get it lowered more on friday.

    Yeah no problem at all, they will look sweet too i like em.

    They will fill the arches a little better due to being ET35 but there only 8" wide so some 10mm spacers might be good, get hubcentric.

    If you can afford / find the same wheels in 19" look will look so hot!
