After the clean they look much better than in the ad. Good buy that, 2 set of wheels that the wheel pimp found 😁
Put up some pics when you get them on the Mini.
You're getting good at this. 😄

The wheels are ET45 and I'm a big fan of the current ET34 fitment, so I'll need to get some 11mm spacers for them. I'll do a test fit with those 205/45 Dunlops once I get the spacers to see how it stands. That should help me decide whether I should get the PS4's in 215/45 or 205/45.

I'd be fitting 215 regardless and deciding whether to use spacers or not etc

Yes, he is, that was a bargain!
JKo, did you see the skinny 205/45-17 Continentals on the 17x7 OZs yesterday? They look significantly narrower than the 205/50-16 Federals on the 16x7 OZs.
I'd get the 215s if only for the looks.

Definitely 215/45! When I got the 205/45 on the ultras I was mad for not getting the wider tyres… If you even slightly like chunkier tyres, 215 is the way forward :cool:

If I remember correctly, they’re available in 18” and bigger. At least it was like that when I was looking for tyres.

More like bearded wonderer 😁

I had forgotten about these pics already. Next club track day is right around the corner, hopefully we don't get new repair shots.


PS4 are very good especially in the wet 👍🏻
They really are! Yesterday I got to do some roundabouts in the rain, and finding the limit would've needed speeds way out of my comfort zone for a public road. They're a bit noisier than PS3, but a lot quieter than AD08R. Ride quality is not as good as with PS3, but these are lower profile (215/45-17 vs. 205/50-16), so that was expected.

Lighting was a bit lacking after washing the car (and immediately getting a shower of rain), but here's the new setup, TD 1.2 7x17" ET45 with 215/45 PS4. Definitely needs spacers.
