Normal aftermarket wheels are boring, it's the 34" Chrome ones you want to be considering :bigblink: chrome.jpg
mmm tempted but they need spinners

Anyone running 20" 10.5 25et
as this is Vossens recommendation just wanting to see if anyone has real world experience of this size on standard 275 30 tyres as regards to stone chipping clearance etc
275 on a 10.5 is a bit of a stretch. Having said this I have 285 on my 10.5 and they look OK.

Yes that's what I thought
I was thinking more 10" with the 275s
But I'm still torn between the vossen VFS4
And the ABT GR alloys but they are about 1k more than the Vossens

I paint the existing wheels black on mine and added 15mm Spacers to front and 20mm to the back (H&R). if you're more conservative you could go 10mm front and 15mm back. It makes the arches look loads better and is a super cheap modification.

One tip to mention, there is a screw holding the liner in place at about 1 o'clock as you look at the drivers side wheel (RHD) and these are real belt and braces. You don't need them, they are only on the front, and they cause rubbing against the tyre that is otherwise not apparent when you remove the clip.
Did you use extended wobble bolts? or switch ot using standard radius bolts?
