    They look great! I’m on the same wheel jr19 but 16x8 ET0. I’ve got 205/55 on and I’ve got to be well down before anything rubs. Have a look at the pics above you can see how they sit.

    What colour are the centre caps? paint the front wheel bearing grease covers the same, and then from a distance you wont notice :D

    Really surprised as 15x8ET0 fit stock suspension and do not " poke" by 1". And with 205 60 15 tyres on lowered cars, they work spot on.

    What was the offset of the 15x8 wheel you test fitted ?

    I had zero offset. I thought they would fit having read previous posts so that's why I ordered them. Unfortunately they didn't on my car for some reason. I my have been ok with plus 10 but couldn't get them in that style.

    Mine are 16x8 ET +10 as they didn't come in zero, and i had to fit a 10mm spacer as the wheel rim hit the coil spring lower seat, which necessitated fitting longer wheel studs to the hub.... what a PITA my new wheels were!
    With the tyres they do visually stick out a tad from the front arches, but not enough to actually hit anything.

    I've run many different wheel tyre combinations. 16x8 +10 rota grid with 225/45x16 fit a standard arch but may touch the strut. 15x8 0et will fit but only with 205 tyres. These are both very close and might not fit a car that's had repairs. Also, I have only fitted these on 2 seaters.

    Discovered this morning that there was a case of COVID in year 4 - so I started his education in the right direction! Apparently “THE BEST DAY EVER”!!! First time in a Z.

    “Daddy, when you die, I’m keeping this car forever”!!!

    I fear he will never want to go back to school now.

    Well if there is a case in year 4 why not isolate 2 kids in year 5 and just the 1 in year 4?

    I was comparing the school action to that of Scotland's football outbreak.

    Still lots more to do. Engine build, fuel tank build, exhaust build, overfender and spoiler attachment plus lots of snagging.
