Quick preview of wheels from the refurb company, still more work to be done to them, decided once I have them back they are up for sale! Going to poke too much on my car and want wheels that will fit perfectly flush.
Look good but i think it's a wise idea. With adapters they'd have looked a little silly.
Pm me a price for the wheels.
I think they could look good on the zed
Thanks, the rears of the barrels are going a deep purple colour, just a small detail people would see if you are up very close to the car, unless a deposit is made on them ASAP I can change the purple to any other colour suitable.
So the thread title should be..
Then another thread should be made called.
Genuine BBS splits?
The bbs were for the bora but due to the chance of 3cm poke I have decided to sell up, therefore your point is invalid.
Wow this Merk fella is a bit of a wenis.
Anyway, probably the right decision mate! Hopefully selling these will give you the funds for something more suitable!
The fact they won't fit without adaptors? And that I don't have the adaptors to fit them. Then there's the fact they need a refurb and are currently in the progress of being refurbed. At the end of the day, it's a progress thread, and I'm posting up my progress.
If you can make a progress thread, document that you have bought an updated turbo such as a Garret and show that it is possible to reach 550bhp then do so, I won't hesitate to comment.
Hopefully they do give me the funds required for a nice set of alloys, hopefully X5 tiger claws or 3sdm 0.05 or any other wheel that catches my eye, and also a set of coilovers of possible from the sale.
If you're going down the static route, 18's are the winners. Easy to get some nice fitment on them. 17's leave arch gap, even if you're low. You can see from mine, when the chassis is sitting on the floor is the only time I don't have arch gap! And 19's will make you look like you're going green laneing.
I agree with jase. 18x9's all round for winners. It's all about concave..
As soon as they are sold then I will order up coilovers and a new arb, thinking about going for an R32 one if they fit the bora if not a whiteline arb it is, then its all about looking for decently conclaves wheels. As soon a I have the alloys back I will do a mock up of them against the bora, and a mock up with 20mm gap between the wheel and hub to see how bad the poke really is, so expect pictures in a week or 2.
R32 arbs only work with certain coilovers. I ran one with AP's.
Any chance you would know what damage if any running without an arb would do to the car?
None. So many people wrongly assume it'll f**k stuff up, if anything keeping it on is more damaging.
In essence, the ARB is there so the manufacturer can soften up the suspension without losing cornering stability. By fitting coilovers, you're making the ride pretty hard as it is. I noticed no difference at all on both cars when removing it. Only thing different was there wasnt a painful grinding noise when driving.
Can fit r32/tt/s3 arb to wishbone with standard droplinks, some people advise spacing it out due to the angle though.
So save money and run without one, are new/ uprated drop links essential when lowering the car?
Anyone who says you won't notice is chatting s**t. When cornering at speed they make a massive difference. No your not going to die but they don't half make the car handle better.
