I remembered the style of the brackets in your setup. So very similar.

Not yet, I need some wheels that fit over the brakes first.

As mentioned on the other thread the wheels have been ordered, I've now got to wait a long long 6-8 weeks :(

Split rim specs:
Front 7J x 15 ET10 with 215/50/15 Toyo R888
Rear 8J x 15 ET15 with 225/50/15 Toyo R888

All to fit within my current arches without any rubbing issues.

I can't wait to see them!!
