  1. Welcome Kyle, ๐Ÿ‘ I not been a member myself for long, but they guys here are very knowledgeable and some if the older posts are wealth of info. I have spent hours reading old posts on โ€˜ how to โ€˜ along with projects threads, really great reading ๐Ÿ˜
  2. Nankang NS20 215/40/17 front not sure on rears, need to figure out offset and rim width. Hope to squeeze 235 on rear. Tyre shop opposite garage so I can mess about a little with tyres, but been using the following tool. https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/?wheel1=195-60-14X6.5ET39&wheel2=235-30-17X8ET25&fcl=50mm&wcl=30mm&scl=50mm&sr=0mm
  3. Not sure, they are MGZR alloys with spacers. Offset according to web search is 45, so I probably have 25mm spacers, canโ€™t remember exactly. Shell studs are extra long. Itโ€™s what came with the black coupe I purchased.
  4. Thinking something along the lines of the attached picture. Sticking to 17โ€ ๐Ÿ‘ even though my gut is telling me could carry 18โ€ off on our arches.
  5. I have 225 on rear of the silver coupe already, 215 front.
  6. Thatโ€™s still wider than I expected, so 8.5โ€ would fit without rolling, thanks.
  7. Impressed you seem to have got away with ET0 at all. In the market for some new rims for my silver coupe now, was going to pay to have the MG ones refurbished, but they are not perfect for what I want. I do like the look of the multispoke, but I want an edge on the rim to polish up like the GTE exclusive alloys are. whats the widest rears we can fit without needing rear arch lips to be rolled?
  8. Clearance looks comparable to a lot of oem fits these days mate, donโ€™t think you have any worries there. what wheels you changing to?
  9. Well itโ€™s been a looooooong time, but not far from getting car back from body shop. They have some snagging points to fix, a bit of the black trim that needs to be painted. Thinking the alloys now need to Dark anthracite with polished rim?
  10. Good thinking ๐Ÿ‘ we are very much on the same page, not sure when I will be getting to work on mine as it still has snags to finish at body shop and with lockdown, they are not working .
  11. Yeah, I have only ever really thought the laser alignment is close, but that is pretty expensive. Whilst not outside my or my Mechanics skill set, the cost of the equipment is - so need to rely on others. But I have been looking at Camber gauges on eBay so thatโ€™s something I can set, but the problem I could see as far as adjustment was the castor. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BG-Racing-Wheel-Camber-Alignment-Frame-Without-Digital-Dual-Axis-Angle-Gauge/362249191456?hash=item5457bc0020:g:oD4AAOSwyDFdzQro I have seen some digital inclinometers that are magnetic, I was thinking about tac welding something liken to a frame into the stub axle just to setup, as It should be set when under normal compression of car for zero. Although I might not be able to accurately get the true reading before, I should gave a relative point to figure itโ€™s changed angle?
  12. WoW that is freaky! silver coupe is nearly back and I was think about this exact topic yesterday. I have adjusted the top ball joints so that I can move them a little that will adjust a little. I was reading And http://uniball.fi/cgi-bin/webio2kauppa?Cars/Opel/Opel-Ascona-/-Manta-B-RACE-eturipustus-&naytasivu=1002&id=0&saitti=rallycorsa
  13. Cool, he has a pair too. good find ๐Ÿ‘
