Nice one cheers bud, I haven't got any wide wheels yet but fancy getting some just trying to work out how much hassel it'll be before I end up buying some wheels that are no use to me and that ill struggle to sell on

I have 9.5x18 Rota GTR's with either 235/45/18 or 245/35/18 on my 6 just cant remember off the top of my head which. Car is lowered with a Tein Mono-flex set up, I had to trim just a bit of the plastic guards away and all is OK, there is only a very little bit of scrubbing on the front but only on full lock and nothing on the back

Not got 9 inch wide wheels (only 8.5) but I do run 255/35/18s without any rubbing (apart from a tiny bit on the arch liner on full lock). Wheels are Volk TE37, ET30. Tiny sliver of rear arch cut away. Depends on what tyres though, as when I run 235/40/18 888s on track, I had rubbing issues (road tyres are Goodyear Eagle F1 Assys).
