notcied the rm's in the back ground haha when they going on??

its sittin real nice btw i love that the fronts down a tad more then the back.

Haha spend a good few days setting up the 'stance' when I first fitted the MiesterRs.

My day off tomorrow, gunna take the RMs apart. Talking to a guy on Edition38 about some new lips.

Im gunna completely build 2 up to 8j with a 195/45 maybe even 185/45 (depends what brands etc) see if they fit on the front, if not, ill put them on the back.
With my calculations, the offset will be about 5-8 at 8j would should sit ncie with rolled rear arches.

Im looking at camber adjusters too, front & rear, mainly just to the straighten the fronts up because running about 190bhp when there is about 2" of tyre actually gripping the tar mac isn't very useful. So maybe a 7j or 7.5j at the front? We shall see.

That spec seems good man 7.5" and 8" rears, should be sitting nice with the offset being lower than it is now.

Thanks guys Smile Gunna be painting them yes, Im thinking both lip & centres same colour, most likely an anthracite, with gold bolts.

Today I did the generic 'test fitment' thing.

On the front..





Fitment is pretty spot on!

Also put them on the back to try judge how much room Ive got to play with..







I think once Ive rolled my arches Ill be safe to run 8j at the rear with 175/50s all round Smile

I think all painted will look amazing, away from the norm is the best way to go.
Dark colour with shiny bolts will look so nice.

And if you get bored, you can always get new lips or sand blast the paint off and start again..
