Rat Bus! Gets new Boots

Post by Fin »

Been playing with my wheels for a while now, Getting banded, powder coated etc
I think they've turned out really nice
Big thanks to Brickwerks for the Studs and Nuts, and the Guys at Bathwick tyres for stretching the rears on to the 10 in wide rims :D

Are they whitewall tyres or flaps? My flaps have come out at a couple of points and hang out in the breeze a bit, doesn't look very nice.


er.. if you know what I mean.

They are flaps.....

You need to deflate the tyre to get them in place properly.

Yeh I had that done. I guess they just slipped out, or weren't put in that well in the first place. Standard tyres? Radials or crossplys?

They're 16 x 10 at the back running 225 55 tyres
And 17 x 7.5 at the front running 205 45's
Going for the whole drag inspired look.

Definately gonna extend the rear arches and then slam it... :D

Wheels are Merc fit by the way with a 5mm spacer up front converted the front hubs to studs because I wanted the same wheel nuts all round
