It took me a long time to decide, but a finaly made my choice

In the front 9 x 20 with 235/35 tyres

In the rear 9,5 x 20 with 265/30 tyres

This way I could keep the original offset

Alloys look VERY nice :thumbup:

The back alloys do look like they protrude more from the arches. Will they not catch on the arches? (please ignore my ignorance, I know nothing about wheels) ;)

They look "phat". Do you find the RCZ "crashes" at all now?

Abz wheels are nice, but that style of wheel is you used to much....

Abz what I don't understand why have 255/30 in the front and a 255/35 in the rear .....
Plus wath is the reason to have 255 in the front I don't understand

Abz who wide are your wheels and what is the off set with out the spacers ?

I prefer DanRo's wheels as they have a contrast. As you are all probably aware I'm not a fan of black alloys. That's just my personal preference :)

Which alloys did you have before Dan? You have the xenons so quite a high spec? Did you not fancy speccing the solstice alloys (if this was bought 2nd hand I rescind my comment about speccing the solstice!!)?

This isn't a BMW we're talking about here....

The RCZ is a Front Wheel Drive car. Having extra wide rear tires do you no good whatsoever other than it looks nice. All the weight is over the front axle of the car so if anything you should have wider front tires if you want more grip.

The RCZ R comes standard with 255's all around.

As for the 20 inch wheels aesthetically very nice but that's about it.

Dand87; I didn't want to use spacers and I wanted to keep the orginal off set ...
So by using a 9" in the front and a 9,5" in the back the wheels align perfectly with the outside of de body with out changing the off set.

Tomas; The RCZ R is not on 255 tyres, but on 235 ones but they also used 9" width wheels

And yes the 265 tyres in the back have no advantage, but it's something you don't see everday an on a RCZ and it looks real mean.

It make's to back side of the car look even more impressive

Abz who wide are your wheels and what is the off set with out the spacers ?



I agree there are alot of wheels around with this style, but it suits the car IMO :) Especially now I have black roof arches. And hoy many do you see on RCZs? :)

Image

The main reason is 255/35 doesnt fit on the front without rubbing the arch liners, so I swapped them with 255/30. Since them, I think it looks quite good as the wheel and tyre fill the rear wheel arches quite nicely.

My wheels are 9.5 all round, and I got it like that as I was told 10s would stick out the back too far and 9.5 on the front for the reason stated, more grip.

Abz; I like the way your car looks. Have you changed other things ?

Exhaust ?
Cat ?
Brakes ?
Chip tuning ?
Intercooler ?
Air intake ?

How do you get the speedo recalibrated for the larger wheel.
To comply with the MOT laws ???
