new wheels for the BG

hey guys, looking at gettin new wheels, just gotta wait on money coming through...would prefer 17s, but these only come in 16s or 18s...love them absolutly, now question is will a 18x7.5 fit under the BG or will the guards need to be rolled...

These ARE VERY LIGHT WHEELS! I will kick anyone in the balls who says they're not. And if you don't have any balls, we can sew some on there first...

I think they are a good affordable performance wheel if you pull the stickers off them!

What size did ROB-80E have on the grey BG? I know they were 18's, but not sure if they were 7.5. Suppose you could take them to the dealer and test fit a set of wheels, might be able to sort that out.

ninkinpoop < i havent heard that in AGESS!! LOL..

Gav, im getting the car back either tonight or tomorrow. I have redone all the suspension with Andrew (B3M) so ill take it for a massive strap to see for scrapes. Even if it does scrape i want to getting a fatter compound and a smaller wheel. Talk soon mate, ill text you or something.

No fuzz Dan, let me know when you're popping around AFTER YOU HAVE GOT YOUR WHEEL ALIGNMENT DONE. And get those skirts off, otherwise I can't get the jack under the car!
