    Whether they "fit" and whether they "cause fouling issues" are 2 totally different things. Providing the PCD/Offset etc is correct then yes they'll technically fit just may cause scrubbing issues.

    So whats the score with rubbing? rear arches and/or fronts on full lock etc

    How much is it lowered by (if any) ?

    no rubbing at all, not lowered yet but looking at the arches and how the rims fit, 30mm should be easily aitainable wihout any major modifications

    Looks wrong.

    Even with it lowered 30mm its going to be way off the ground

    I have 19's (Only 7 1/2 x 19 and ET42) and lowered about 60mm and it used to look high with no body kit.

    Im with Lee on this one...the only way it would work IMO would be with a mega wide arch kit so that it could be slammed about 60mm or so....anything less than that and it just looks like its on stilts

    Dont get me wrong...the wheels are defo top notch items - just think they'd probs be better suited to a RangeRover or at least a slammed and kitted car.
