Where did you buy those from? Everywhere I tried they only had them in black with polished lip.

edit: nevermind, I just noticed your location, got me exited at first. The other colors have been backordered here

I took some pics tonight. The car is sitting too high but I'll sort that out once the arches have been rolled.

225/45/15 R888 vs 205/50/15 Federal 595 RSR







How they look on the car - I really need to lower it more! The 205/50's tucked in nicely. Please also forgive the blue roof. I'll get round to having it painted eventually!





I've got black wheel nuts being delivered tomorrow so should look a lot better.

Very nice.

And TurboTyler, I thought you are pretty far into your KL swap like me, not a V8 swap?

I'd like to test fit this 15x9 on my goodwin BBK.

I have been eyeing these lately. They make em in a ET15. Perfect offset for a widebody car with 9" rims. I would really like 245's for the 10's but who knows when that will happen.

Didn't know they made then in ET15. They'd look awesome on a widebody car.

I had a play in Paint Shop Pro and came up with the pic below. I made the hardtop as black as I could and also lowered it to the level I'm hoping to achieve when the arches have been rolled.

My Bad I confused the Rota K7 with the Varrs Toen V1.5. These have ET25, ET15 and ET0.

The Rota R7 is a better looking wheel IMHO.
