    Booked my car in today....

    After another day at work, deliberating on what to do about my wheel and tyre dilema, i rang Rtec again and after throwing ideas up and down the phone for about 15 mins, i booked my coupe in for saturday.

    I have chaned my mind about my rim choice and size so many times in the past few days, but i have decided to get the following:

    19" Boss XTS's, with Pirelli P1000 Neros:


    35mm drop on Apex Suspension

    Rear Arch Rolling.

    I have to be there for 9am, so its a 5am start , but itll be worth it!

    I have to say, Rtec is easily the best modified store i have come into contact with. their knowledge and customer service is as good as it can be, and actually care about what you are buying off them, instead of just wanting your money.

    I would recommend them to anybody and will be certainly using them in the future!

    Matt.

    Cheers Mat, im just glad ive made a decision, so i can stop pullin me hair out about it!

    Although 18's is the best compremise on looks and performance, i think 19's fill the arches much better, and generally look the dogs bollocks!

    Thanks for all your help Mat.

    The only thing im worried about now is this rear bumper bracket prob i might have! Im wondering if Rtec can sort this for me, although they didn't mention it to me on the phone?

    you should be fine with the coupe as they do have a lot more room in the rear arches.

    Worse way if it does catch it will only be very slight, when I fiited my 19's I was at PVD (northampton) with my mate and the 17's on the car. We changed them over there and then put the 17's in the boot and rear seats, and then me and my mate got in. It only caught a little bit and we had to get back to Birmingham.

    So worse way you can get home and grind them down a little yourself its not hard to do.

    Well that sounds ok to me! Im guesing its a case of 'trial and eror', until the tyres stop catching?

    Just don't wanna make a mess of my pride n joy!
