Got the rest of the wheels on today.

Don't know why but I'm not feeling it? I think they look smaller than my RS7's? Think they may be up for sale shortly....

I dont dislike them on the car but i know what you mean.... They were made for the Escort cossie and suit them so well. Whats the offset on them and width?

They are 7 inch wide and I think they are 27et?? But I can't remember to be honest..


Well I thought I would dig out my old wheels that were originally on the car. Literally had to dig them out of a bush, they had been in there for the past 4 - 5 yrs!!

My little girl gave them a clean

Image

As I said, they'd been in there a while! Had stuff growing on them...

Image

Now I had to check the wheels went over the cossie brakes, even with a flat tyre which didn't help.

Image

Fill the arches quite well

Image

Image

Rears were ok but the fronts don't fit.

Image

Calipers touch the back of the wheel on the fronts..

Image

Now it looks like I may need to cut out about 10mm from the back but I'm a wee but worried that I could lose strength in the wheel...
