    I resisted the tempation to take some pics of the 2 stacks in my garage of the wheels and tyres. But I have gone for a set of CH's in 8.5"s and 9.5"s x 19"s

    But I must say the unmounted rims look gorgeous and huge!!!

    Dude, just put up some photos of the rims. 9.5's to the rear sound a bit tasty.

    Realised that post sounded a little homoerotic.... Just like to clarify i've never described 9.5 inches to the rear as a bit 'tasty' before.

    L60N, can we please keep this discussion to the wheels in question. I feel too much of my personal life is being revealed.
    Now if you don't mind i'll return to the safety of my closet.

    It's well documented i've been considering a Z4 coupe (3.0 si). I think it has it's certain camp charms but it's a cracking car with sublime engine.
    Really well priced used examples too if you can afford to run it. Z4M coupes can be had with VERY low mileage for well under £30K. Makes a TTS look a bit pricey...

    I might have a word with this Philip chap... I've gone off of MTM's and Sportecs due to weight and the CH's despite being quite common do look superb.
    BBS really do take some beating.
