Anyone had any experience of fitting these wheels

What modifications will have to made to these wheels (if any.....before I waste any more money!)

Cheers

if they are et 35 your gone need a 5 to 10mm spacer up front.. and probably the bolt holes drilling out to 14mm from 12 mm.

and of course the normal bits like longer bolts+ longer rear studs. 

WHY T3's.... because they are just so adictive, and having one just aint enough

These are what i have on my T3 crew, fit so well compared to other wheels i have had as they sit behind the arch even with spacers (as oppose to the unsightly sticking out) also means if you want to slam the suspension they shouldn't foul the arch.

You will need a min of 9mm spacer on the front as not to foul caliper/upper wishbone.  I put a 10mm spacer on rears as it looked stupid with a wider front track.  You will need to drill out bolt holes with a 14mm drill, i did mine extremely carefully by hand.  That should do you.  You won't be able to fit centre caps on backs dur to castle nut, maybe able to modify.  I have fitted mine with 195/45 Tyres and lowered 60mm, but due to the size of the wheels and tyres i am considering going 80mm as still reasonable gap between tyre and arch.

Hope this helps

Griff

A bet the speedo and the gearing are magical with that size tyre....a 15% difference which is 98mm smaller than standard....plus the fact they're car tyres that aren't weight rated.

That's one bit of info not to follow.

195/70/15C or 205/65/15C are the correct tyres to use.
