Do the exhaust tips just pull off or is there anything holding them on?


They were just and interference fit so they came off with a bit of wiggling.

They are dare river r-3s, quite a cheap brand but hopefully better quality than eBay non branded ones. The finish seems to be to a good standard on them. They are 19" 8.5j et38 all around. Hoping with stretched 225 tyres on the front they won't rub

Haha yeah a bit stanced for my liking but I got them for a good price. Might have to end up rolling the front arches if they are rubbing, I'm hoping they will be ok with the stretched tyres

Well I decided to try one of the alloys on the front of the car without a tyre on it and it looks very wide, it stuck out about 5mm from the front wing when the car was jacked up. I'm hoping that it will just fit inside the arch when it's dropped down and under load, starting to stress now! Should have my tyres tomorrow :oops:

Hmm with the car jacked up and poking I reckon you're gonna get 'more' not less poke mate once dropped on the tires.

Plus you're gonna be very close to your springs and dampers strut etc - this is my VMR 8.5J ET45

Yeesh that's close! Yeah I might have made a very expensive mistake. Anyone got a rough idea of how much rolling the front arches would cost?

Produce this @ Overdench.com would do you a good price for being a forum member but if you hit the strut then spacers on top and then rolling involved - these could be expensive wheels my friend lol

I was looking at my arches this evening and I don't know if rolling them would be possible as half of the arch is made up of the front bumper. So if I were to flair the arches they would sit out from the plastic bumper :roll:

So I finally got my new wheels on my car :spotman: they are a lot lighter than the standard wheels that were on the car! I've taken her out for a spirited drive on the back roads and there's no rubbing which I'm very happy about. They JUST fit in the wheel arches, I was worried 8.5j would be too wide. Now a set of lowering springs are next on the cards, I've been looking at the eibach ones.

Here's the new wheels 19" 8.5j et38 all around

And the poke on the wheels

Wheels weren't perfectly straight here
