I really like those chunky tyres on old school split wheels. It's just that whole '80's look with the 80's ultra low profile /50 tyres :mrgreen:

I may go that route once my current set is worn (which is fairly new). Will also provide a nicer way of lowering the car (no arch gap) with plenty of ground clearance to spare.

The wheels were e34 fitment so should have 235/45/17 front and 255/40/17 rear but those michellins were 225/45/17 all round (small stretch on the rears). Actually relatively low profile lol although they do look huge in that pic.

Hmm. I thought maybe the non-stretch was making them chunky, but still a light stretch. Either way it looks great.

That is so scene. Who'd like to see these sort of rims sit in some fat arches with suitably wide rubber as they were intended? I would. :(
