Haven't updated here in ages, but its due!

I hated the weak fitment with these wheels...

Had this roller taken on the way to Ultimate Dubs, my first one anyone has taken and I just happened to see it on Instagram and spoke to the kids and got a copy :alright

and then a week later, I got new wheels! 9.5 et33 all round, on the front I clear the coilover by 3mm. Put 235/35/19 tyres on, a bit of stretch but nothing major. The fitment could be better and I was saying 'ahh but this is a daily' however I am going to get bigger spacers and dial in some more camber now haha!

Pictures taken on an old iphone whilst car was parked on a hill makes the height look goofy and lame.

Actual height when flat is the tyres are basically inline with arches, maybe a little lower. These are the least flattering pictures ever, but until I get my DSLR back off a friend these are the best I can get!

Few showing poke (if any), fitment etc..
Front, with -1 camber:

Rear with -3.5:

As soon as there is a warm dry day the car will be going 10mm lower, its currently been lowered about 65/70mm.

19's plus cheapish coilovers and tyres with stretch makes for poor ride comfort...however the handling is pretty good.

I am not bothered by ride comfort really as long as it looks and handles good. Im only 19 so my back can handle long journeys in uncomfortable cars for a few more years haha!

And yeah, I got lazy :lol:
