Been on here a few weeks, seems to be a more midlands based forum so wouldt mind getting involved in meets and what not so thaught id post.

Iv only been running the car for a month so its pritty bland atm, just gathering some engine build parts atm.

i baught it with a mangled front end so its pritty ruff but will be staying like that more then likly as id sooner spend money on other things Smile

looks like you are heading in the right direction with this. you could do with spacing the wheels out to warrant the tyre stretch though imo

B20 Build - i like Smile

that stretch is fine dude, ive had no problems with the 175's stretched onto my 15x8j Schmidts



ive given it some abuse around the bends with no issues

they did have 165's on them but they looked like rubber bands lol

Get the 25mm, you know it makes sense Wink

If the wheels don't fit then the arches need adjusting not smaller spacers Very Happy
