I'm wanting to fit 280mm discs and there is no way they are going to fit under 14" wheels, gutted as I love the orange ones I bought but needs must.
15" to test fit, with 45 profile tyres they are actually not much more in diameter then my 14 with 50 profile.


In case you need it.

Ha, nope only the mk1 came with the quartec wheel. I'm using an omp type wheel.

Current job is changing the lower ball joints as the mgf ones have too much camber. I have some rover 100 ones which have a few degrees less. Also I may slot the wishbones to allow adjustment. But first I have to drill out the stupid rivets !!

So I've decided to stick with 14" wheels and the 240mm brakes, I'll add a remote servo if needed.

I've been busy drilling out the rivets on the mgf wishbones to fit R100 ball joints for less camber, might make them adjustable too if needed. The rivets have to be drilled, no way they are coming out any other way.
