There is a chance, that 215 front will not make the full steering lock, and for that Regelin is happy to sell you some carbon cups to hack into your sill to make that fit.

I have Finally made up my mind and going to Order  ...... Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 race wheels :-) But 18s instead of the usual 17" 16" set up ...I know there is going to be loads who think this may be a tad stupid lol but there is not a huge difference in the weight department ... The rears are going to be 18 x" 9" wide with ET 35 as standard. Front 18"x 8" ET 25 Almost standard i know the car will probably not ride quite so nice but not planning on doing track days with these wheels just for road driving.

Not gonna fit... I have 17x9" ET27 and it's a very tight fit. With ET 35 you will need 10 mm spacers!

Thats strange as the ATS DTC 9x17 ET30 (rear). They fit ''bolt-on'' - no adapters or spacers are required for fitting. The Original wheels are 35ET ... Are your wheels tight to the inner arch or outer wing ?

Noticed i made a mistake in the post rears will be 9x18 et 30 as per ATS DTC but 18" according to the ET calculator i will have 14mm less clearance on the inside and extend out 24mm more think i should measure my clearance of my car before i order lol

It will probably depend on what tyres you fit (width / profile) and if you've lowered the car..

ET 30 should be ok but I have something like 5 mm clearance from the spring perch, so with ET 30 should be 2 mm!
The problem with ET 30 is that with 235 mm wide tyres they rub on the frame when you use the car on track!

I have a set of BRAID wheels for sale that are 17 all round. Cheaper, lighter and better looking than TDs drop me a line if interested.

I have put my order into today for Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 race wheels front 18x8 et15 and rear 18x9 et30 ... I know this is not a popular size but just wanted to try the 18" size to see how it handles compared to standard and its not for track days just day to day driving.. Demon tweeks were very helpful... Only have 6 weeks to wait to find out if i can make them fit.lol
