    Default First stage of Operation 121 Ellipsoid..... Test Fit!

    Been sourcing and gathering all the bits to fit my new alloys, ive gathered most things i need just waiting on my Coilovers been delivered, threw the adapters on and one of the alloys last night to see how there going to sit, please bear in mind the camber will be adjusted to took them in plus arches are been rolled to accommodate them, I do feel this is going to be a bit of a marmite thread!

    19" mate, I'm in two minds to be honest, I spotted them on ebay mid December, stook it in watch list and near the end of the auction they were still stupidly cheap! Stuck a cheeky bid in with the intention of selling them on to make a couple of quid, cpuldnt believe i won them! as theve been around the house for a couple of weeks I grew quite attached to them LOL, bit of research and talking to pals I ordered the adaptors and all other hits I needed, ill have to wait and see when all done, least I know ill be able to cover me money back!

    They are super wide, will they sit flush with the arch? I remember reading somewhere that tyres must not protrude out past the wheelarch to pass an mot, I might well be wrong but I think I read it somewhere.
