Hi all...
Thought you might wanna know about fitting larger wheels and tyres to your BA.

The original are 17" and I have opted for 19" 8.5wide front, 9.5wide rear
Offset is 35 (same as factory)
PCD is 5 x 114.3
front tyres are 245/35/19
rear tyres are 275/30/19

they ride nice, no clearence issues with guards, suspension and brakes on the front.
Tyres sit close to the Lip on the rear, I might get it rolled, time will tell.

The car is also lowered with Kings -45mm springs

Ill try and post some better pics soon. (this one makes it look like a GTB Subaru)


Comments questions advice, all welcome.

Ok so here is the big question....

I have some Stripes for the bottom of the car all way around like the FVP's.
The stripes are silver and are the same type as the orange car.

These are them on ebay. (scroll down once opened)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0088422848

I already own the stripes but I havent fitted yet, so depending on the outcome of this question, they might get fitted or they might be up for sale cheap.

Do I fit them or not ?????????

(Mine is the blue car, the stripes are silver like the orange car.)

Yes or No ????

Thoughts please.

That looks really good man... personal opinion; I would leave as is, though I dont mind the stripes I think it looks really clean.
