just bought some new wheels. 17" Chrome cant remember the brand with 255 on the back and 235 on the front. will this work even if the car is not lowered? its booked in 2 weeks from now.

Sorry forgot to say that the car is an EL.

EL & AU Rims are different fit, you need spacers to fit AU's to EL and in some states and Insurance Co. that is illegal. Have you got correct rim's for EL?

Will what work even though the car is not lowered?
I don't see any reason you can';'t fit the wheels and tyres to the standard height vehicle?
WHy are the front tyres wider than the rear, usually it's the other way around...

thats a good question. i never said wider tyres on the front????? thats abit silly.

anyway yes its an EL Rim its an AZN MAYHEM. im hoping to score a set of P7 Perrelli's to go with it.

Also will i need to get a camber kit or will that only change when i lower it??
