FPV 18" x 9" REAR WHEEL RIMS

For those of you that are interested, there is an easy way to properly fit 275 X 35 rear rubber to your GT/GT-P.

Ray Billeau & Sons - General Engineering in QLD, just re-engineered my rear factory wheels to be an inch wider with and extra 4mm offset. (I also had the guards rolled)

They look bloody awesome. I also had all four wheels fully machine polished. The wheels now have Michelin Pilot Sport tyres all round. WAAAYYYYYYYYYYY !!!! better than the Dunlops in ride, noise and grip quality.

I strongly recomend this modification, if like me, you are experiencing a serious lack of rear wheel grip, after performance modifications.

When I get a chance I will post some pics.

Re: FPV 18" x 9" REAR WHEEL RIMS

by the sounds of it they machined the inner edges from were the tyre mounts to the bead making it thinner to allow the fitment of a wider tyre, would that be right

Has this been done before? If so, was there any complications? Is it legal? No problems with ADR? I wonder if doing this will not cause complications with insurance? I guess what ever they don't know won't hurt them.
