As long as everything goes to plan Shaz I should hopefully have them on for the Monday night meet.
 
I also will soon have some picks up once they are all sorted Rob

So a parcel arrived in the post today from the US with my new valves for my new wheels. These are flush fit valves so I don't have to have a valve stem poking out.
 
Not long now.... Getting excited

And so today another piece of the puzzle arrives, and also received confirmation that the wheels are now in the warehouse awaiting pick up so I will be picking them up on Saturday.

So the day has finally arrived. Its wheel day 
 
I picked up the wheels on Saturday got them home and spent the afternoon trial fitting them to make sure all the clearances were right, I had to adjust the front hub and coliover to gain a little more clearance between the wheel and the coilover but once I did that I had no clearance issues.
So this morning I headed down to my local tyre shop and had the new wheels and tyres all fitted up and a once over on the wheel alignment.
I have to say the 12 week wait for these wheels was well worth the wait and I am really really happy with how it came up.
Now for some picks.

Very nice choice in wheels, they aren't the strongest of wheels from what I have found so be very mindful of pot holes.
 
Suit the car perfectly!

Thanks and don't worry I will be keeping a very watchful eye for pot holes I would be very upset if I damage one.

They are Front 18x8 +29 and Rear 18x10 +35
 
I have to also thank Jason (MR2QIK) and RobK for their help as I was picking their brains over offsets along with spending plenty of time under the car measuring everything twice before ordering to try and ensure I wouldn't have clearance issues.
