      Got my adapters today. Time to send the wheels out for chrome!







      And a crappy little iPhone video. Kinda hard to hold and drive at the same time.

      Ya poke is a little much. I'm going to see if the machine shop can take off some of back of the face of the wheels to get the 2.5" lips to work. If not, I go 2" in back and 1" up front. The stock lips fit perfect up front. Exactly flush with the fender. And I can run DE Brakes too, so I might stick with the 1" up there.

      some better pics. The fronts fit perfect, but I think I am going to mill the faces down a half an inch and put the 2" lips up front and mill the rear down almost an inch and keep the 2.5" lips out back.

      your not going to be able to mill the back of the wheel a half inch. most of the time you can get 5-8mm safely. half inch is almost 13mm

      they dont look to poke that bad in the rear at all. wheels always look like they poke more without tires on them.

      why do you say they won't be able to mill a half inch, stucture issues or it's just too much to mill?

      I this build!

      Have any pics of the backside of the faces? Ive machined a few sets down before and 1/2 might be a bit much unless you have really shallow lug bores with lots of meat on the back.

      Ive made a few sets of rare caps in aluminum before like these before if your interested. I dont have closeups of the ABT but they say sportline as well.



      close up of detail on mine.



      Keep it up.

      Those caps are definitely dope. I actally just has James make me a few sets of A9 plastic caps. So for all you guys that are missing caps out there, hit me up. I have 3 extra sets available, with abt decals (coming soon). Thanks for the offer though my man. I will keep you in mind if I decide to change up and go with something different. I really like the look of them, but i just received my caps yestarday.

      Will, yes. I have 15mm adapters from Adaptech. I have tons of meat on the back of the face. I will snap a pic in a bit and show you guys. I think I can have close to a half an inch milled down without a problem. The wheels were et38 so I do have plenty of meat plus room with the spacers.

      Dude, I was in awe. The two Brambles look bad ass side by side in there. You should take a pic. When you comin back? I have some work to do this week on mine. Rear brakes, find that damn oil leak, bolt down the water box and battery box and take the speed ring off the front hub. It's making a ton of noise because it's a little warped.

      Dropped off the a9's yestarday. The machine shop said 1/2" off the back would be no issue. I get them back Friday and then they are heading to Cal Chrome.

      I ended up not machining the wheel at all. I measure the backspacing to the RS's in the rear and they are exactly the same. I think the wheels with out the tires made it look really deceiving. So I just shipped them out.

      what car and where is it getting painted and how much etc. post pics when done.

      there is a thread in the regional forums about a local corrado gtg.

      problem is we all think were too good for a corrado gtg, lol.

      after all, as corrado owners we do consider ourselves elitists.
