Very nice 8-)
How do you find the heavier wheels with the diff when letting the clutch out in reverse ? I find when I have heavier wheels on the back my diff shudders a bit in reverse. It feels like the clutch, but it doesnt do it with lighter stockies on (the diff is fine too, it's just been checked)

Oh yeah, on the way home tonight before short night cruise i was coming thru citywest link and hit something on the road and it punched my sidewall on my front right michelin :( GRR! left bout a thumb size hole and those michelins aren't a thin tyre!

I had a repair kit, jabbed 3x rubbers folded in it and got the mini tyre compressor to put it up and funnily enough it actually HELD and still is, very odd infact!

tomorrow ill go and get another 245, ffs! not happy.

Tyres i got as a swap over for other wheels, all up they cost me including adapters under the $1500 mark roughly. But thanx for all the comments, appreciated! And thanx to Matt in Brissi too.....
hopefully they'll stay on ..

And hyena, havent noticed anything in reverse.. just heavy in general i can feel it from the others!

Yep agreed here too. But i would have the say the MkII GT-P rims are looking mighty sexy. In 17" or 18" would be good as i dont think the 19"s will fit my car very well :twisted:
Hmmm might have to start inquiring on the wheel king site now eh.
