Tight fit. 19 x 9. About 2mm away from the strut on the front with a 10mm spacer.




Need to get it lower.

Looks OK but surely it rubs?

:laugh: Yes of course I'm on air. At ride height it's okay.

Need to roll the front arches and dial in a little more camber on the rears. Or use slightly smaller spacers on the rear.

:) Thanks! It's the best way.
That beading looks amazing.. Wheels aren't for me but car looks nice!
They're not for everyone but thanks, I spend too much time detailing this car.
Always loved your car mate, looks lovely as always. Simplicity is the key
Wow thanks! Means lot buddy.

Love this.... I need air!

Haha yes you do sir! And I need bigger calipers.

Another shot of the beading as it was mentioned

WHAT DO YOU CLEAN YOUR CAR WITH?! Seriously it looks great though, that beading!

looks amazing, with air ride what happens if something goes wrong and it airs out while your driving? Instant right off no?

Pretty much, but you could say the same if a spring shears in half..

Kind of, if you buy a decent kit the bags are unbelievably thick! It all depends on what sort of speeds etc you're doing and your set-up. I reckon if you're driving sensibly you'll probably need some arch-work and a new tyre.

Bag will lose pressure and car will lower itself. Usually sitting the arch ontop of the tyre. (4 way set up, you'll only lose pressure from 1 corner meaning only that corner will drop.. Rest of suspension will help keep car off the ground.)
