Iv only ever bought brand new aftermarket wheels once and within a week some twat squeezed me that much on a quickish road I rashed them. I was furious.

One of my brand new pro race 1.2s fell over on the gravel drive face down as I was fitting them... Nearly fucking cried, so pissed off at myself!

215/45. They’re pretty chunky but don’t have a really square shoulder like an AD08r etc.

They're a bit smaller overall than the standard 205/45/17.

I think they'd look better with a 50 profile, in a 205 or even 215 width.

215/45 but on 16's, I'd have 50 minimum I think, but probably in 225 filling the arch better, adding grip, and correcting nearly all of the speed over read

Well feel free to buy some for me these are only a few months old so might as well use them!

Yeh next time I’ll 100% go for a 50 profile. Probably AD08r again the 205 is like a 215 almost so a 205/50 would look spot on.

I managed to mark one of these taking them off! Undid the last wheel bolt and the wheel fell forward onto the socket.

Got on the dyno today for a bit of a tweak on the map. Despite the 31c temps and mad amount of heat soak I was getting the car still made 226 at the wheels with WCF so would happily make 230+ on a cool day.
