That grey Z is pretty much how I want mine to look :o


I'm taking my 108's off for the winter months and will put my style 201's on, in this time I will sell the 108's and order 19's with Eibachs. Hopefully......

Non M IIRC is ET35 all round..
The ones I'm looking at are

Front et35
Rear et45

Should I be looking et35 all round?

I've got 19" csl reps from bmautosport with the exact offsets as you posted, but I opted for a 225 front as rubbing was not an option for me, and better matches the rolling circumference of the rears, I don't rub at all even on full lock, the gap is minimal tho, glad I chose the the 225

All on stock suspension, mines not an SI tho

That's what I've ordered, from BM Autosport too. But that's handy to know about the tyres, thanks.

How low are you? Or how close is the arch to the front wheel? I have standard Si suspension but I want to fit the Eibach Pro Kit which is 25mmi think. With your experience of the wheels do you think that will be ok for me?

Thanks

Mines just on standard suspension not lowered at all, if you search Gr3z on Flickr you will find a few pics of my zed with the wheels and stock suspension to get an idea what it looks like, there is loads of room on the rear but if say there is about 10mm clearance on the from inner arch cowling when the wheel is on full lock on the outside edge of the tire

Found, lovely car!

So is that standard Si suspension or Si Sport suspension, which is a tad lower? Look like its sitting perfect.

Mines a e85 3.0i se. so not the si model, so I don't think it's the sport suspension. I've considered lowering it but decided I'm going to leave it on stock suspension as I've live down a bumpy gravel track with speed bumps :(

Just browsing and saw your post....... BM Autosport sorted me out with satin black CS on 19" and just let them choose the offsets etc they were great. Tyres, I chose the Vredestein ultrac sessanta's from camskill. They are awesome in the wet and dry and look good.
