My rear wheels arrived from compomotive  today. Hopefully will get the tyres mounted and fitted tomorrow.

I do love cxr’s. On my list of future purchases once I move to 13” rims.

Thanks guys. I got the tyres mounted and then fitted them this afternoon. I’m really pleased with the look now they’re all on.

A much better look that the build wheels.

Awesome wheels, mine are at the powder coaters currently :sun:

Probably just the angle of pics, but do your rear wheels sit outside the arches slightly?

Oh yeah not as far out as they looked!

Can you put a straight edge/spirit level etc down from the arch to the floor without it touching the wheel?

No, due to the sidewall bulge, the straghtedge sits around 3-5mm outside of the arch. I think this may be an issue come IVA? i was planning on using a set of different wheels for the test though because Westfield seem to be unwilling to provide me with a calibration certificate for my speedo with the 13" wheels.

Easy way around the speedo, is to fit the speedo sender to the rear diff driveshaft bolts and run a cable to the speedo. Then you can ignore the certificate.

Thanks justin, I may well do that.

@Valentinik yeah if the wheel/tyre stops the straight edge going vertically from arch to floor it will fail IVA

thanks for the confirmation, i thought that was the case.
