Got any pics?

I doubt they would fit the front though :(
The 8in wide wheels already rub on the larger swaybar I have at full lock.

But if Bassfreak wants to buy them....;)

Haha, 19's would be a bit too big for me, i think..
But then again, if 'EL XR8' has any pics of them on his car, i might think about it.. Cos ive got an EL XR8 aswell, lol, coincidence...

Hey guys,
There's one pic i just uploaded, i might try and put some more on soon. Check out the gallery, if you want but keep in mind it hasn't been lowered yet. I'll definately put some pics up when i get it lowered.

I personally haven't had any problems with them hitting anything, except when i first got them, when one front tyre hit the guard when i was turning, doing 60km/h and went over a bump. but i've rolled the guards now, and i haven't had a problem since.

They're 9 inch wide on the front and i think 9.5inch on the back.

Thanks mate, i'm reasonably happy with it at the moment.
Getting the suspension done in a week, so i see how it goes.
I'll post some more pics in the gallery, when its lowered, and let u guys know if it bottoms out or gives me any problems or hassles.

Thanks

Dave
