Tyre Stretch & Fit Picture Thread

Recommended Posts

polocollector

I thought it would be a good idea if we did like a picture thread. Like the ones for different Mk's of Polo’s. But for Different sizes of rims. and different sizes of tyres. So we had a library for reference.

I am just about to order some rubber for some 6j p-slots. and I'm struggling to decide what to go for! I know we have sites like tyre stretch (www.tyrestretch.com) But i thought it would be better if us Club polo people had a thread of pictures of different wheels and tyre fitments that are more suited to POLOS!

So go ahead.. Post a picture. a single picture. And Put your Rim size. Tyre size. And Drop in a sentence at the top! :)

I think its got a bit of weight on it, uneven ground.. There's still a little adjustment left on the coilys but waiting til I get my chassis notched otherwise it'll be unlevel.

40mm Drop, 195/50/15s. A perfect example of why not to only drop it 40mm, can you tell?

Nice wheels. Must have done some arch work to get 195s on a bready without rubbing. What speed rating are they?

Here's a site you may find useful http://www.tyrestretch.com/index.php
