Really? I didn't think that they would match my car.
Suppose it's more generic to. So it'll go with the next car to.

+1 for white on black. Anything on white looks like it belongs on a 17 yo's lancer with pink seat covers and playboy stickers on the back.

haha mines a need to know basis.. :roll:

Now that everything is fixed(fkn ford wty) in 3rd gear I need a couple lanes to drive the thing with the right foot on the go pedal at 60km/h and not hit something. :metalasfuck

People can say what they like about various workshops, but John certainly knows how to make a car quick.. other guys with similar top end power don't have cars as wild as mine is on the road.

You should go there next time for a mods/tune session.

I saw your beast at Bryan Burt Ford Mansfeld the other day JNR, the service coordinator thought your car must must have been quick because of the plates!

Guy is a retard btw.. hope he's not a friend of yours haha..

Only guy there that won't rip you off or go full retard on the car is Luke the workshop foreman.

Ash you got the new rims fitted to the front what size width etc did they end up being cause the website looks like 9.5 wide front and back which is massive but what I was wanting to do.. but I need suspension and don't wanna pay for it.

I've got 245/35/19's now I want wider rims for wider tyres lol if I'm gunna buy 245's I'll use stock rims..

Is there enough room to fit a wider front tyre? I like the idea of rotating tyres so was wanting to have the same width front/rear 265/275 would be nice all round I think eventually

I will possibly steal your rims someday but for now I think I'll go stickier tyres in 245/35/19 on stock rims

Lol. You'll have to fight me for them. Actually, no, you'll just kick my ass. Lol.

You can fit wider tyres on the rear. Just depends on the offset of the wheels.
Anything larger than a 265 would scrub on mine I reckon.
Fronts. Dunno. I don't think I could go any wider at the front.
Just swap left to right. The insides of the tyres wear a lot faster than the outside once it's lowered.


On a different topic. Went for a spin in a brand new cooper jcw gp today. Wow. What a car.
The ford is obviously a lot faster in a straight line, but this car was unbelievable around corners. For a fwd car, it handled like it was on rails. All made sense why phags love these cars. They look cute, but they're so fun to drive!!!

I thought Greg was the service coordinator. Nah not a mate of mine, I was just there to check out an FG ute tail shaft. Luke seemed pretty good though.

OT:

I'd take a new pug 208 gti over a mini. Probably break down within a week but it looks gorgeous and being French it'd grip like a cat on carpet.
