No bought spacers yet, as will only need them come coilover time and since KW are majorly dragging their heels, it seems that may be a while off yet!

I have will get more pics up if needs be for people?

Also, the NM engineering wheels image is not showing???

Thanks - can see them now!

Not for me though - don't suit the car IMO

they have a different model on the way as well, but I just don't want 18s for mine. I want a lightweight 17 with sticky non-runflat tires

I don't know but I'd guess comparable to the current pricing on their site.

I think its gonna depend on offset of the wheels. There is plenty of clearance for them to come out. I think with a 7.5 wheel at 45 offset you can run MAYBE up to a 215, but if you were to add some 5-10mm spacers you would definately be in the clear on both ends.

my friend has a set of 17x8.5 ET35 with 225/45. I'm going to test fit them to see how those specs work out. I expect it will work but possibly some rubbing at full steering lock. Will take some pics whenever I can get the time to do it.

What suspension setup do you have? Adjustable Dampers or sport?

Also what did you do about TPMS, swap them over, get rid of them or get all new sensors.

Yes, I have spigot rings and different bolts to suit the radius seated wheels.

I swapped out the OEM TPMS from my original rims into these.

Oh ok nice, do you remember what the thread pattern is for the bolts we need? also did you need a rebuild kit when you swapped the TPMS or did you just swap them over without any new parts/seals etc..

thanks and sorry for all the questions

M14 x 1.25 - you will be able to use the OEM bolts (cone seat) on pretty much most aftermarket rims, its just that I chose a set which use radius seat! I didn't know that the wheels would need radius bolts until they arrived though!!!!

TPMS were just unbolted and bolted into the new rims, no issues.

Regarding TPMS, it appears TireRack has still some challenges in this regard.

The Asiento wheels and tires I sourced from them came with TPMS which the car could not recognize. They cheerfully agreed to RA that set of sensors, and shipped me a different part to try.

I tried them.

0 for 2....

Ultimately we'll get it sorted I am sure.

That happened with the set I got from ECS Tuning too. I don't know if they're the wrong part or if we need to be doing something extra to calibrate them. Hmm.
