    Alright so I'm looking around for some tyres to go on my new wheels. The Wheels are series 2 SV6/SS 18", what width tyre do they take 235 or 245?

    Cheers guys. Yeah Dan, pipe dream is to put in a LS2 or so once I'm on my fulls, but since I don't even have my P's yet I've got plenty of time to think about it.

    Thanks mate but it won't be getting lower for quite some time. My tyre funds just got eaten up by rego so lowering is way off.

    Yeah will do, but I can tell you now they won't be cheap, the rears were $440 for the pair through GSL and I think the fronts are around $350 each. Took it for a short run this around this morning and they seem to be working well so far.

    Yeah not cheap but I'm not fussed, just means progress is slow. I'd be looking at going Kyb's for yours decent quality and a more wallet friendly price.
    Next is getting some tyres for the wheels in post #1, just paid rego so that ate all my tyre money. Hopefully I'll get some money for my birthday so I can get them on soon. After that its front shocks and lowering. And by the time that gets done it will probably be March 2014;)
