Thanks for the comments Gruss.

I will add some pics over wkend if it ever stops raining..!!

My rims are Compomotive TH 14" x 5.5j    4x110    ET45      66.2mm centre bore, with 165/55/14 Bridgestone Potenza RE030 tyres.

I have been using Compomotive wheels for along time and my contact there is Adrian - 01902 311499.  You'd have to speak with him regarding price, vat and shipping.

Interesting with the center bore size, are you using spacers on the hubs? i'll have to take a wheel off and measure it with an internal vernier.

I bet a 175 would fit on the 5.5j rim as well, what do you reckon? i still fancy some yoko a048r's. More pictures would be great! did they come in black powder coat from new?

Nope no spacers...totally standard Avanzato R4 hubs with standard discs / calipers.

Wheels fit perfectly and are level with the body line of the car (not sticking out).

175's would fit I imagine, however car is so light 165's are more than enough.

Sounds good! i'll give them a ring. I was thinking going wider to try and put the power down after struggling at santa pod at the weekend!

The Challenge Tarmac tyres were 175 Yokohama's which fitted under the arches fine and gave more than enough grip for the power.

However im guessing that the wider you go the more drag you cause which negates the extra grip off the line to some extent? anyway leave the wheel / tyre combo up to you as ive no experience on drag strip.

At the moment i've got 155/65/13 and they struggled to put the power down without bursting into massive wheel spin. I'll get some prices for the rims first lol
