Right.

I can't remember owt...

15's with 50 profile tyres? yay?

Basically I can get hold of some... well 3, and need to buy 1 new one, they arent amazing brands but it means I can get the RS2K's fitted.

I had them on my first fiesta and they rubbed on the arches, that was with a 40 mm drop

I can't see them being a major issue, MK5 ZS's came with 50's standard.

14mm difference in diameter.

I dunno.

Anyone else used them?

They can rub as Jamie said. I had 50 profiles when I first got this Si because they was on the wheels and 35mm drop it wasn't too bad from what I remember. Don't think it rubbed at all really.

Chris has 50 profiles on his ZS and its not too bad at all, didn't scrub when we went out in it yesterday.

If you can get them free/dirt cheap then it might be a good temporary option :) But soon as you start winding the coilovers down it might be worth getting 45's :)

Can always trim my arches, not as if that bothered me.
Plus.. I'm running with slight arch gap from now on. Better handling.

45's can suck my dick.

I was only going for 50's cause I HAD access to some cheap. But not anymore because that car is going to be repaired and MOT'd tomorrow.
