Re: Mk2 RS200 offsets

The biggest I've seen on an esky are 16 inch rims. The widest rims i've seen are 7.5inch, but they were the RS alloys from europe, and I'm not sure as to what mods were done to the front and rear guards. 7's all round would fit comfortably, and 16's with the right ride height would make it look real sweet.

What colour is the RS and what have you had done to it?

Re: Mk2 RS200 offsets

Sounds great. Im planning on fitting 16x7's on my MkI Escort although i havent really looked into it yet but im sure it can be done. Im fairly sure ive seen 17's on a MkII. MIdnight blue is a great colour.

Re: Mk2 RS200 offsets

there is an RS2000 in perth running 17's, and IMHO, they make the car sit too high. i personally dont like them, but thats just me.

as for minilights, look at this

Re: Mk2 RS200 offsets

Performance Superlites are good except i dont like the look of the 15" but i will be fitting 16"x 7" superlites to my MkI and they are about $210 each without tyres made in Adelaide they are much cheaper than the Compomotive brand and the minilite brand which are made in the UK.
