if there 12x6 then you would have to cut arches but you wouldnt have to modify brakes in any way. if they are 10x6 no arch mods are needed but brakes will if you have the usual 8.4 inch discs.

you might just get away with 12x5.5 but that depends on how straightyour car is!!

My brother's old mini had one wheel about 5cm further back then the other one :gasp:

Due to a few accidents, and a bent subframe, but it still drove ok :tongue:

I think you can fit the 12 6 Deep Dish Superlites without any mods becuase of their offset or sommit

I've got 6 x 10's over 8.4 brakes. Almost all wheels that are wider than standard need the arches cutting or modifing.
