Very nice. I suits the white car.

One question, do have any contingency in the event of a flat?

Curious to know about the performance of the KU36s
These seemed to be a real bargain

Call a Taxi or get my wife to bring a spare wheel. I would not be a happy camper if it happened.

I think will just use these wheels for drags or track days and use the stock wheels and tyres most of the time.

I actually got them to see if i can beat Matt the next time we go to the drags.

The tyres hang on good thats for sure.

Pixelatted! It is hardcore for sure mate?

Somehow the silver rim makes it looks smaller then it actually does. I am sure it is because of the jpeg compression too!

Wheels look great Darren, certainly a nice part of the world as well.
Done a fair bit of road riding around there in the last 18 months but looks like I might have to watch out for a rapid white 135 now!
There was also a thread on here a while ago re emergency kits for guys with non-run flats from memory,also plenty on the main forums if you need info.

Nice Darren!
I've got exactly the same tyres (unused) sitting on my spare 261 rims ready for the track & drags. What are they like as a road tyre in terms of ride, grip, noise etc?
Cheers.

Tyres are really good have got heaps of grip i havent performed any launches as yeat, They are more noisy that stock but no that much, wife didnt complain about it which is a good test, havent had them in the wet yeat, i might keep them on for a few weeks then save them up for fun times

They were the cheapest i could get cost 950 including fitting tyres

18x8.5 42 offset all round, they scrape a tiny amount going over large bumps on the road but i think its just touching the plastic cannot see any marks on tyres
