    So after reading over 30 pages of this thread I am still none the wiser if I will have any rubbing issues with this combo on my S38P (std suspension);

    8.5x19 - 5x112 - ET43 with 235/35/19 tyres

    Most cars on 8.5 or even 9 seem to run 225/35/19 but I don't really dig the stretched look!

    Help!! :think:

    New wwheels are here ❤

    [​IMG]

    cant believe how light they are.

    Does anyone know if the standard bolts and lockers fit? I did receive some new bolts and specified my vehicle so they should be correct but obviously without taking the old ones off I can't tell. Will try a test fit later.

    The wheels are here and on!


    Out the box
    [​IMG]


    Sealed with two coats of jetseal
    [​IMG]


    them wrapped in the new design Bridgestone Potenza RE-11. I spied these bad boys on our shelves at the garage and had to have them. Such an aggressive tread and only paying trade they were worth the punt! Just been reading into them and the Porsche boys are putting them on pay with R888 for grip but grip from cold, they beat R888 for wet handling and apparantly last forever. I imagine theyre on pay with super sports!


    heres a quick snap of the tread
    [​IMG]


    i had a issue where my lockers don't fit properly, does anyone who has TDs know of a locking wheel nut which will 100% fit?


    ill get some more pictures of them fitted when my cars clean!
