May look ok with the sky blue paint, will have to see once cars done. But it will be sooo hard to paint over the shiney :cry: I love shiney.

Caution, if you smash the kerb at a huge speed your imitation wheel may be damaged!

Shit yes, good effort those look very sweet.

+ 1 for leaving them that colour until you have tyres/paint on the car.

I'm glad I got the 9's all round, I nearly chickened out (remembering the alto wheel debacle :rolleyes: ) lols.

Thats the best thing about rip off wheels, you dont care if you smack one into a curb! If I put an $800 rim into a curb i'd just roll up in a ball and weap. It must suck having your wheels ripped off so blatantly, but hell, its good on the ol wallet!

Nice! They fit much better than expected. So those are a 9" at 0 offset?

It's likely that the tyres will hit the rear of the inner guard at full lock when you get it sitting on the ground... and it gets even worse when you're doing a skid. Bash the lip of the seam over if you haven't already and try to pull a reasonable amount of caster into it to solve the issue.

A bit of rubbing at the front is way better than having it jam in the rear.

It's like having one massive brake on the inside wheel when countersteering. i.e:

I'll have to watch te vid when I get home, but I know what ya mean about hitting the rear of the inner guard, I had to have castor added when I got the car to stop the tyres hitting that seam. And yeh they are 15x9, 0 offset.

BTW, has anyone gone throught the cert process recently with under sized tyres on?
