mind your off set if your getting 215 wide tyres. i`ve got 205 tyres and theres only about 15mm clearance at my rear struts.
also the n/s/f tyre rubbed on the inner plastic wheel arch but i managed to fix that with a self tapper.
check my motor out, they`re a kind of in between silver and charcoal colour. think its called power silver.
nice crack by the way........one of my favourite chat up lines! :lol:

How the bloody hell did that happen??? Did you have to drive out of the pot hole?? This wheel takes the cake.. previously held by my past next door neighbor and one of those star pickets they use for fencing punching a neat hole through the front wheel of his 350Z..

i hit a curb doing about 10km's an hour, must have bent the rim ... and then it went bang later that night. only found out this morning when i went to see how big the puncture was

Sorry budy, maybe if we weren't running away from a Celica and an MR2 it mightn't happened... New rims and tyres though... giddiup, but no more drifting... oh!

That would have been a nice little surprise if you were travelling speed. Also that rim most likely was faulty to crack like it did. :shock: :shock:

Holy crap, thats more than I pay for my car loan. For just the wheels. Thank Mazda for factory alloys... it allows me to hold off buying expensive rims.

Although.. fancy wheels sure do look nice :)
