    Cheers for that ducker! Hmmm does look pretty good, but not 100% convinced if I should splash out for another pair of 20x10s. Any other pics mate?

    ****, that IS cheap! What's the quality like and how is the finish? If I do get it, it'll need to match what I've already got.

    How much for 20x8.5s in a custom offset?

    That's motiavted me to get off my bum and beefen up the front end hahaha

    Might stick with 20x8.5s up front though, don't mind the 20x10 look, but unless laying out on the ground, reminds me of a monster truck lol

    Fit and finish is perfect. If you want a custom offset, I suggest do what I did and order a +20 offset and have it machined back from there. As this is the process they do anyway. Usually the manfacurer has 2 dies consisting of a low offset and high offset and this forms the basis of the different offsets that they offer.

    Go on Alibaba.com and you can buy a minimum order quantity of 100 wheels (eaches) for $25USD!

    Hey Turbo, did you have a chance to look at what width and profile tyres you are running front and rear?

    Awesome. Where did you get your wheels from. My supplier has had a few quality issues and now isn't answering his phone. Probably because he has an entire container of stuffed wheels. Long story. Anyway. Who was your Supplier? I just can't find anyone who stocks BBS lms in this staggered set up and size. Your help would be much appreciated. Had my heart set on the BBS km and I feel anything else would be a compromise.

    This thread is more of a "Picture of my car thread" than an actual "build thread". Also went down to San Remo as part of the SSOC event, whcih is where most the pics were taken.

    Also, nothing really new, apart from a set of Whiteline Camber bushes were fitted to the front for an additional -0.5 degrees of camber. Still doesn't completely match the rears but do sit a smidge better than before. Also had the wheel alginment done again on all four corners, which was a pain and a half but all is good now!

    Keen to take it down to the Crusie for Charity event this Sunday!

    what are the tyre widths? isn't it cheating to say you have 10's all round when you put 9" tyres on?

    looks so good. Rims suit it so well, nice choice. I had some BBS hokenheim sp?? rims years ago, loved the look but they were such a bitch to clean.
