    My car will finaly arrive in the next week or so and I need to know if the BBS wheels that are an option on some cars the same size as all other preface lift or wider. Also I need to find out if 225/50/16 tyres would fit ok instead of the stock 205/55/16?

    ahh that is true Carsten, but the stock BBS wheels are only 16x6 and aren't really suitable for 225/50 tyres. Kenneth had them on his car and found he could push the car about 5cm's sideways with one hand when the car was just sitting there, and it also handled like a very soft poo around corners.

    Thanks for the replies, looks like I'll have to stick with the 205/55/16.

    they are relatively easy to find here in NZ.

    Normal evo 6/7/8/9 wheels are available cheaply too. There is a set of evo 8 wheels that are $800 with 70% grip Bridgestone S-03's on them, and they can't sell them!

    ohh and you're right about the size, all 7/8/9 rims are 17x8 38mm

    That one is a bit newer than yours as well, why didn't you go with it?

    Well here is what the EVO MR BBS look like on my car with no rubber as I need to sell my current wheels to pay for the rubber.
