Once you've done paint, wheels and turbo you should send it in to Zoom magazine!

i took a pair of my current wheels off today, and had the tyres fitted to the b45's for a test fit.

muzz spec;



i was pleasantly surprised to see how little work i actually have to do to get them to clear! i thought ide have to weld an extension to the guard for sure, but ill be able to get away with just hammering/smoothing whats there;











same tyre, 165x45x15. left is on a 15x7" rim and the right is the current 15x5.5"

Thats hard core! flare the sh|t outta the front gaurds and a little bit on the rear, it will look insane! You might need to get a little bit machined off the font wheels tho by the looks of that haha.

sif machine, theres plenty of room!

the front flares wont be as big as they appear to need to be, as the guard is so thin i can pull it out most of the way by hand.
ive already done most of it by hand haha, then just hammer out that vertical lip and itll be sweet

job for the weekend, cos it looks to be crap weather as usual.

ill be giving it a bit of camber aswell, but i cant do that until the sheds done and have all my tools here. only got basic hand tools atm.
