  1. Aodhan DS01 rims brought them via Cartel Aus. http://www.cartel-aus.com Contact Phil for a better price then is listed on the site. Got them out of the states. Thought these would of looked good too.. With the rear offset they poked 24mm out from the guards prior to pumping. These were the highest offset available, 10.5 in a 38 offset would sit just outside to the stock guards. Prior to guard work. Wanted 18" to get more side wall to increase grip.
  2. Agree they are noisy but it's always a compromise for the level of grip. To be honest will not put them on the fronts again that's were most of the noise is coming from. Have sound insulated the entire boot to rear seats which made a huge difference. The revised version (R888R) are a little hard to get atm, more availability in months to come. Review states improved mid-corner grip. http://toyotires.com.au/tyres/motorsport-tyres/item/1250-proxes-r888r Agree the larger the tyres footprint the better, the next size up will not work, will foal on the inner guards when she squats under load.
  3. Tried just about every quality tyre on my Ute (600kws). R888's are by far best, don't waste your money on anything else. Had 315 on it with a 10" rim. R888's even work great when cold and just get better when warm. Best I ever got was 12000km out of a set with most the time on full boost. If you nail the F6 in first (ZF) it will slightly let go, any other gears all good. No Spinning. 430rwks & over 1000NM
  4. Get 1 in every crowd... R888's are a massive tyre, 275 are equivalent to 295's in other makes. Do they look like they are stretched.. NO. They sit flush with the rims. With the offset the rears poked 24mm prior to guard rolling and now sit 1mm to flush. How these things squat under load any larger tyre will hit the in guards.. Riiiiight. Achieved what was desired, get it to hook up and look tuff.
  5. Rear guards pumped 25mm and a re-spray Aodhan DS01 rims in 18" 9.5+15 and 10.5+22 wrapped in 245/40 and 275/35 Toyo R888's

  7. Japan ?? on the piss already.. R888's are a massive tyre, 275 is equivalent to 295 of other makes. There is bugger all stretch on the 10.5, they sit flush with the rim.
  8. Rear guards pumped 25mm Aodhan DS01 rims in 18" 9.5+15 and 10.5+22
  9. Got the F6 Back the other day from getting the rear guards pumped 25mm and a re-spray. Kept the factory swift colour. Fitted up Aodhan DS01 rims in 18" 9.5+15 and 10.5+22 wrapped in 245/40 and 275/35 Toyo R888's quest to get traction !
  10. Will get them done when board for what it has now.. have to get a better fuel pump too, only running a 044 with Plazmaman Surge. After this the ZF will need some attention...
  11. Nar the Valve Springs were suffering..
  12. Ha-Ha thanks for the comments.. The wheels are Work Rims 19x8.5 Fronts with a 30mm Spacer and Rears 10" offset 35
  13. Sold the Ute then got a St Focus, Great Little Car ! and in between found this FG F6 Mii. Got it tuned by Dave (CPV Tuning) made 432Rwks and 1080Nm's on E85. 400 on Pump Valve float when turning it up to 455. Stock motor mods: Factory Turbo with porting + 12 psi Turbosmart actuator Plazmaman intake, cooler, fuel system + rail tog 4in zorst 1000cc bosh injectors Battery relocation Built Tail shaft Going to do coilovers and replace the NT05's on the rear with R888's and hopefully leave it alone. If the ZF fails will get the springs done too and turn it back up to around 460 Love the factory turbo compared to the GTX42 that was on the Ute. http://
  14. hi, price on shockworks for fg f6 sedan please del to QLD 4802, cheers chad

  15. Had to buy another car due to having our first baby and the Ute no good for the expanding family. BTW the Ute is F/Sale !! Culled the list down to 3 being Subaru WRX Sti Hatch (Motors are time bombs) and Mazda Mps3 (Dated interior and bad toque steer) so the St won. Would of loved to hold out and look at the new RS 4wd Focus or see what the 2016 Mazda Mps3 offers. The dream car would of been one of the Audi RS Hatch's. Was not into the Golf's with the new R offered no track setting to turn off all the electronics.
