    Hi James, I believe they are 45mm offset and 8' wide, I can't get to a computer to check ATM, they are 18inch ronal fat five alloys if that helps :)

    You probably want a final offset of 30 then, maybe a bit less depending on the exact look you require.

    235 tyres fit perfectly on an 8J rim, so maybe a 215 if you want a stretched look. See what the others are running.

    Prices are on his website, mine were about £70/pair for 8mm and they include longer bolts, but not locking ones, you'll need to source them seperately. Good hubcentric spacers aren't cheap unfortunately, 15/20mm will be significantly more I'm sure.

    Try creations motorsports. £55 a pair for 15mm hubcentric spacers. And there a piece of art.

    Also, do the t-sports sit higher at the front than the rear?? (looks like it to me) So if I was to lower the car what would I need to do to level things out??

    Ahh nice one. Instead of replacing the pear he's and going through the whole pinch bolt nightmare, can't you just use different sized springs to drop the front more that the rear???
