Thanks for the photo of a stock 19 in rear and 18 in front from a straight on side view. It really gives the correct perspective and visual comparison between 18s and 19s on this car. The 18s IMO look really good.

What size are these R compounds you have installed? I guess I'd also need to figure out how to read those numbers too.
Clearance is bad on these wheels, had them as a spare set on my e46

Tyres are racing wets 265/645/18 so pretty much the same as a 265/35/18

I had to go 9.5 on the front too. Some coilvers with a shorter spring design can give more room. The MCS kit is bad as the spring gets bigger but mostly its down to running a lot of camber.

Chucked a 3mm spacer on the front to give me that little bit extra clearance.

Since pictured above I've had a geo to my desired specs and ceramic coated the wheels, will be putting them back on this evening and going to try out my 10mm spacers all round as gained room with added camber.

Bedford GT this Saturday, lets hope I can remember how to drive on circuit.
