They look great. What wheel size are they?  19's?  If so, do you have a problem with maintaining same rolling radius as the factory 18's?
Mhh, the first post says 19's and 20's, you're getting old. :p

I wonder what these rims would look like on a SV?

They seem to fill the arch much more than stock 18's?

Why is that if the rolling radius is the same? Or is it?

car is also lowered...

tyre size would be available to keep rolling circumference close enough...

You're right!

I've heard of drivetrain problems with aftermarket wheels larger than 18's.

Quick photoshop, bit hard with the back wheel with the perspective and reflections but you get the idea.

If the front to rear ratio changes too much you will have problems. This holds true for any awd car...

Awesome photoshop hope you dont mind I changed a couple things on it...

Looking forward to seeing the shoot, who is doing it?

Not really sure. I will try to find out for you.

it can't be done, remember?

firstly,.... of course it can, just not by screwing the spring perch down though. Would need different springs (and maybe resetting the height sensors), easy done.

secondly... it's not an SV... is the SV suspension different to std 640? I really have no idea.... just curious... maybe a 640 IS easily adjustable?
