Alloys for a mk2 on coilovers

Post by Rascal » Thu Oct 24, 2013 3:18 pm

Hello I'm new to roccos and I am getting her looking all shiney for spring so im treating the car to a new set of shoes for shows ect, it's a mk2 gt2 and it's been lowered by what looks a fair height, it's got 15" ronal, but I can't decide weather ats cups will fit, or ronal turbos, I've also been looking at ronal teddys as I think they look ace, but they are only 14" so will they look lost? Or will I need a silly big profile to make up for it, as I say wheels probably will only be on it some weekends so not to bothered if the speedo will be 5mph out or so, if anyone has any experience ect any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers Charlie

Both ATS cups and Ronal Turbos will fit if the have the correct PCD and ET. Search the forum there are others that have both of the wheels you've mentioned.
Your GT2 came as standard on 14" wheels with 185/60/14 Tyres so your Speedo will not be affected however they generally are over reading by approximately 10%.

Okay cheers, awesome should it be 35-40 et? I think I read that somewhere on here, it was them or I was looking at ronal teddys, because I want to be different, well I've not seen them up this neck of the woods, cheers Charlie

16's (tyres are 16x40/45 - can never rememberx195). Removed the cack shields from the inner arches and sealed everything.

Where are you getting the ATS from, Ebay or suchlike? A lot of wheels have the ET stamped on the inside of the wheel.

:shocking: that seems stupidly high money for a set of wheels that need straightening and welding

Right, sorry for all the posts, but is anyone running Ronal turbos 15" 7j?
Just really not wanting to start taking off bits of body kit and was woundering what size of profile and what width of tread I will need to go down to?
Thanks for all the help!
