      So, when they pulled the fenders, did they use a fender roller? Or the phone book method? Or the good old hammer and straighten method?

      alittle fender roller, but also hammer and straighten because you cant get to everything with just the roller.

      Not sure what kind of wheels i will make next, but i need to find some rare centers and make custom lips and barrels again... The sale of these wheels really boosted all actions and manpower onto my mk1 vw caddy.. haha maybe ill go around 2011 season with my caddy . 1.8t, 6speed, air ride, bbs'

      Sorry about that!!! been out of the game lately, let alone on vortex.
      I never had got around to measuring it, but Mike, the current owner says that its roughly about et35 in the front and et0 in the rear..

      Bringing my thread back from the dead....
      Bentley's are being sold this weekend, and my new wheels have been ordered...
      These will be there ultimate KEEPER wheels and CRUSHHHHHHH the RS'. The Audi will be "one off" once again...Next up heavy engine work once I'm out of debt..


      stay tuned for when the wheels arrive for some test fitting photos.

      Thanks man! Means a lot !

      Yep, only spacers on the front so that I could clear the brake calipers. The rears were as flush as possible. I had like 2mm between the spokes and the caliper so that I could accommodate the biggest lip

      and now... the new wheels.. Once I went with 19's I just loved the look. I couldn't go back down to 18's


      BBS E88's Fully polished!
      (5x112)
      19x9.5
      19x11






      (sorry for the dirty car, but we've been having crappy weather in Chicago. windy, dust, rain)
      quick test fit.
