    Had it mapped at Puma build, but I’m going to take a trip up to puma speed who are saying they can get 418 bhp rolling road proved, then probably going to go better internals and turbo

    Can I ask how you are finding it drives on 20s ?

    im being put off them by the tuners, even Puma said their demo car was harsh on them

    what is real life like with them as I’d really like to go for them rather than another set of 19s

     

    thanks

    To be honest I haven’t noticed any difference and I’ve had mine lowered,as you know they the ride is firm anyway. It still handles and drives great

    Nice one thanks for that info

    sorry to peck but did you get plenty of  miles in on the 19s before the 20s ?

    Im having KW coilovers fitted so should be ok

    can I ask what width wheels have you gone for and are they ET45 offset

    lastly what exact size tyres and profile are you on ??

    thanks, appreciate it

    The wheels are Bbs chr back addition tyre size 235.30-20 Michelin super pilot sport same as original tyres but in 20s I not sure of the offset but I ordered them from Rs direct Bristol them boys no there stuff so I left that to them, I think I did under a 1000 miles just didn’t like the original rims don’t do the car justice,

    I think 30 profile is ok too

    I run that on other cars without Much problem

    I checked out your BBS wheels last week when RS direct posted pics on FB

    id like to know your offset as I believe 45 brings wheels out about 12mm from standard so no spacers needed (providing I guess that they don’t catch)

    if you’re on 30mm lower too I’m thinking you’ve answered all the questions that tuners  couldn’t by just using  the FIT which is what I normally do ?

    I had spacers on the original rims to fill the arch but didn’t need them on the Bbs
