Careful with that profile as you should be going 205/50/15 to keep within the same diameter and circumference to oem 14" size. Unless your trying to fill the arches a little more.

I prefer a higher side wall as it soaks up the utter shit hole of roads we have and protects my back from complete destruction. Every little helps! Plus the arches are better filled than empty. Hehe

More stuff has landed today. When will I be able to throw it on 🙏🏼

Reg plates made after finally finding who sold it from new and also bought some sound proofing as I binned the original stuff about 14 years ago. Expensive but what’s new when building these things?!

Where did you get the sound proofing @Danny D114BCW? Is that for the front foot wells?

Yeh to replace the standard sponge.

Got it off eBay. 20mm water proof self adhesive too. £60 but I think I have too much. Would like to fit it but still no car 😩
