Got some gloss black porsche lobsters 19x9.5 et46 all round need tyres so will run 235,35s and also need 15mm adaptors so overall et of 31. It's going to be a squeeze but should look nice. Not sure what to do with centre caps. Porsche is part of the vag group so makes it OEM+ but a lot of people don't understand and think that I'm trying to pretend I'm a 911 or something. Same as bentley and audi wheels. Will be a few weeks before I get them on but won't be running them until after the winter. Just hope I can squeeze them in!

Also not a big fan of the black so will look at changing to the same as the audi rotors, that grey titanium colour as you loose the detail of the wheel in my opinion, they look tiny with no tyres!

Finally got some tyres and adaptors sorted for the wheels. Still waiting of wheel bolts though. Decidied to go with some cheap nankang ns2 235/35/19, the wheel specs are 5x130 pcd 19x9.5 et46 with 15mm H&R adaptors. So final et31 all round.

Had a test fit and this is the result...

Not the greatest set of pictures but you get the idea. Theres about a fingers space between tyre and arch so it's quite close, but I want to get the front down a little more. Tried full lock on the front and there is less than a fingers space between tyre and arch lining on both sides. I think they would look better in silver or white but I'll run them black for now and see if they grow on me. Thoughts and opinions?

Cheers mate! Just hope they dont rub when I get them on properly. Easy fix is a slight camber on the rear and roll the front arches.
