  4. Tyres and spacers advice

    Kev 16v: Nah, it is not there since i cannot remember for how long. I do have the bracket and the intercooler installed though, these may help Kobir: Not sure whether 18x8.5 rims affect road noise, but Continental Premium Comfort 6 are bloody noisy. They are excellent in grip and handling though. Previously I had Linglongs that were soooo lovely quiet for 4 years but i had no confidence testing the rest.

    Having a Rotrex fitted helps
  10. Tyres and spacers advice

    215/45 are perfect for your rims, mine were having the same spec. Regarding acceleration you won't notice a thing, it is a placebo effect. I moved to 225/40/18 and the acceleration is still there. The only difference is the harsher ride. Now about the spacers, you won't need any tbh, maybe 5-10mm on the rear, but leaving them as is you ll be more than fine.
  11. Tyres and spacers advice

    Correct..it's a fairly common size..although there's not a big difference in price.
  12. Tyres and spacers advice

    cheaper too I think, eh
  13. Tyres and spacers advice

    215/45 is fine. Many members on here have 215/45 on a 7J rim
  14. Tyres and spacers advice

    thanks mate. when it comes time to get tyres, is a 215/45 OK on a 7j or is that pushing the width a bit?
  15. Tyres and spacers advice

    You're getting better acceleration with a smaller rolling radius than the OE 205/45. The downsides are: A harsher ride Less bump absorption putting more wear onto your suspension components, and increased risk of a buckled rim Speedo reading will be out (215/45 on the front actually makes it more accurate than 205/45) I'm running 215/40 front, 215/45 rear..so decent acceleration, with a bit more comfort on the rear. Rims are slightly wider at 7.5J though. I don't recommend this set up for a face lift TS, or GT though. HTH
  16. Tyres and spacers advice

    Kev, what sort of impact am I having compared to stock wheels and tyres on my 140 running 7j with 215/40 profile ?
  17. Accident damage.

    That is my plan. Should get a few hundred for the 2006 engine. My only problem is storage and removing of parts. I live in flats with a communal car park.
  18. Tyres and spacers advice

    If you don't mind a bit of "tram-lining", 225/40 would be fine on 7.5J, as the rolling radius is pretty much spot-on. The problem is availability..who sells them?. 225/45 is two sizes up from OE, and a bit too big in my opinion. I think your TS would be slower than a 140 in the 0-60 dash. Economical though
  19. Tyres and spacers advice

    Many thanks for the reply, much appreciated. Iv been on the web and have read some people even go 225 tyres on 7.5j, is this overkill, as for 40/45 I’d go for the 45 as I like abit of meat on the tyres. As for spacers, il use the wheels as they are and go from there, if I think it needs pushing out abit more I think il settle for 10mm spacers but will see how it looks first when I whack the wheel on Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  22. Tyres and spacers advice

    Unless acceleration is all important, opt for 215/45 (215/40 otherwise). If you must fit spacers, don't go any wider than 10mm. Personally, I don't think you need them with combo of rim width/offset, and 215 tyre. FYI, I run 7.5J ET35 215/45 with 17mm spacers on the rear, with occasional rubbing on the rear tyres if carrying one passenger and drive over a dip in the road. Car is lowered 30mm on Eibach Pro Kit.

  24. Hi guys Hope everyone’s well I recently purchased a set of wheels. The size is 17x7.5j with offset of +30 First what tyre size should I go for as I know there’s a few sizes I can get but wanted to know the best size is your opinion Also I’d want some spacers to give the car a good stance, nothing too funky just push the wheels out abit to make it look aggressive and sit flush. I have a gen7 GT and the standard lowered suspension for now which will be changing to coil overs in the future. Arches have not been rolled either Look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  26. Accident damage.

    buy it back and sell it for parts on here, probably get more back than it costs to repurchase it.

    They want to get it into there possession first.

    Did they make you a decent offer or do they want to get it in their possession first?
  29. Accident damage.

    Car being collected by the insurance company on Thursday. So today I took it to a local trusted bodywork fitter for a quote. He simply said it is too fare gone. The boot floor is crumpled there is a damage to the front behind the bumper. So my beloved car is dead Engine is from a 2006 model and has done less than 50,000. Leather interior is perfect as are doors and all the electrics are fully working. Still drives a dream,
