    Rotors & RS6s were 8.5s, so I always run 225/30/20 ;)

    It depends what you want from the ride & how you drive the car also. 225/30 on a 8.5 drive fine, it's a great combo from experience running big wheels with very low cars :wub:

    Gonna sell these & get the set of 20"s I've wanted since last year, I will try and call it a day after them :laugh: :ninja: :wub:

    With the dishes and lip, they do look smaller than your other 20s. Colour is spot on though, work really well against the polished. Shame they don't clear at the front... live and learn. Onwards and upwards. Some other semi-applicable inspiring phrase.

    Those wheels are definitely worth all the work. I'd be too paranoid about damaging them to actually keep them on the car!

    They actually look MUCH better in those last pics with the car sat higher up (specially the front) for obvious reasons. I really don't like it when splits are tucked like you had it sat in the first shot!
