pulled the trigger---finally

After months of looking and trolling the forum on wheels, I finally pulled the trigger on some Varrstoen L151. I ordered 20 x10.5 +40. So as soon as they arrive I will post pics of test fits and all that good stuff.

For some reason, those look tiny? Cars gonna look dope when it's done though.

Anyways, whenever you get a chance could you show me some pics of how those 10.5s fit the 245s (stretch-wise)?

Curious why you have to full coilovers to accommodate the setup?


What size tire are you going to use? Anxious to see how it looks, how it turns out, what you have to do to make it work.

I have 245/35/20 size tires......only off from stock 17 size tires by 0.8%...As on stock suspension, it works fine but when I lower it, I will have to roll the rear fenders, and maybe a touch of camber.

Thanks for the response and link.

Already lowered 1". Finally getting a good idea what's going to work and what's not without doing any stretching or rolling. Initially thought I could get away with a 19" w/+35 offset with a 245/40. Staying with a 245 I'm thinking I need to stay with the stock +45 offset.

I know I want to do the 245/40/19's so I think I'm going to buy the tires and then mount one on the stock rims and see how the fit is and then (hopefully) adjust the offset of the rims I want accordingly to get the max offset that will fit with that tire size.


Standing by waiting for updates/pics etc.

@MZR-6i

Did you get them mounted yet?

I'd guess I'm not the only one that would love to see them.
