    Default Whose got Bk999s on their 3.0?

    Hello chaps,

    Was just wondering have any people bought the BK999 with tyres packages for their 3.0 CDTIs? Off the top of my head I think Caterman has. My reason for asking was what rating tyres did you get? I think they are meant to be XL rated. My tyres have 2-3mm left and was thinking if I could upgrade my rims for a bit extra (after I have sold off my old Signum Design / GSI style 17"s) then it might be worth it. Also how much would it affect ride/handling? Im planning on an Eibach/B4 setup at some point too.

    Cheers
    Marly

    Yup! I have and i did get Extra Load tyres fitted when they were delivered as standard m8 I did contact them before i bought them to let them know what car they were going on though
    I've also put Eibach lowering springs on and the handling is now how it should have been when it left the factory. The Elite set up was far too soft and very un-nerving at motorway speeds as it tended to "wallow"

    I run 18's, not bk999's though. The 3.0 only really needs XL rated tyres if its an auto. The manuals are within the 91W rating. But its not recommended. TBH, mine runs and feels a lot better on the 18's.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
