Well, if you look very closely in my signature, there are a couple of links there and a pointer that reads: " These are picture links you know... "

Draw your own conclusions. :wink:

Anyway, here are the pics of the GT

Ronals are my long time favourites. EBS sells two version of them. Plain silver and this two tone. While the bottom line is very similar color as the inner of the wheel. Decided to go for these. Hope it will look good. So far only tested on the back.

Tires are 205/55 R15. Will measure the weight and add later.

Glad you went for those as you find the dish of the rim has been diamond cut and does not have curve profile . They look really good and have used these a few time with the black and silver badge . The offest is just perfect to fill the rear arches .
Best thing about these 15 Ronals they allow for the small brake upgrade kit comfortably.

Nice! That is basically my car there. Maybe. :)

What calipers and discs are you using?

It’s an Ap Caliper with dust seals so it is larger than most aftermarket lightweight kits. It’s purpose was for road and track use designed by an AP agent here in the UK for the workshop. It is very pricy but this company that made it is ISO9001 cerified.
Go onto Alex’s website and you will see more about the two kits. I have been to this company and met the team before any kits were made and must say they have really Latest CNC machines etc so really good quality.

The workshops name ( Alex Jupe Motorsport) is also etched into the bells .. check it out ..but as I said it’s pricy :)

Rear will be 265/45/15
Front : 225/50/15 :D :) :D

Sadly won’t fit . Very nice looking wheel . . The best I could get and pulling my body work out 20mm plus rolling arches was 245 mm and it would touch . I have 8j rims on now with 225 which sticks really well and you can lower the car for track use . ( well that’s what it was made for )
My 8.5 j front rims caught the front anti roll bar and also the wheel arch by your feet so had to modify body work on the cull at bottom by 25mm .

This was pulling the body out on rear 20mm and opening up the front to fit the 8.5j rims which first had .

Hi Alfaaa1, yes you will def have to roll the wheel arch lips. With 15" wheels you may be able to squeeze them in but I doubt it, very precise offset and wheel alignment will help. I run 245/40/17 on 17x9" rims, standard arch with rolled inner lips. With an offset of approx 20-25mm can't remember exactly. (Wheels +42 and spacer approx 25mm) with 2.5deg camber on the rear they just rub the front edge when dropping off heavy speed bumps, I'm hoping a little toe in will eliviate the problem.
As Kevin mentioned your biggest restriction on the front will be the firewall which can be moved back slightly to accom wider wheels. Again offset/wheel alignment sensitive at these sizes as I'm also running same 17x9 size on the front as well but no spacers on the front. The front rubbed on the Swaybar mounting pin on the lower control arm. When changing to rod ends I cut them off and mounted them on top of the arm. No more rubbing Next is the castor arm. But that may not be a problem for most as I have extra lock on full lock.
Hope this helps.

Its so hard to find tyres to fit these rims. :|
I will try to fit at the rear 245/50/15 if I can find tyres in Australia to suit and then I will roll the Quarter panels.
Fronts will be 225/50/15 or 235/50/15

225 35 R17 on 8.5" Rims. No metal work, no rubbing. I think they are a 30mm offset and I have a 3mm front spacer to clear the caliper (Wilwood) and a 10mm rear spacer for looks.

BBS LM copy by JNC Wheels. Someday I will get the real thing though I did look and could not find the size I wanted from BBS. 18-22" no problem.
