Both are very nice! Fox ones remind me of those sat on the 599 GTO, The Dare ones are just as nice a design though and a better colour   B)

as far as i've been aware i'll need to fit rack limiter kits to stop the tyre rubbing when on full lock. the kits are only cheap though

 

have you lowered yours?

Seriously I get full lock no issues and mine has been lowered. I bought it lowered already so can't be certain by how much but had to buy a low profile trolley jack to get under.

They were 730 with some falken tyres, locking wheel nuts and new black nuts.

i'm looking to buy new alloys fairly soon. dont think i'll lower for a while though

 

still think i'm siding towards the dare alloys but the foxes do look proper mint fitted though

 

where did you buy yours from?

well it doesn't look like i'll be getting new alloys any time soon as just as i was about to check out i was told the alloys i want are out of stock and they wont be in stock for 8 weeks. even though they are still in stock on the site :blink:

 

really really annoyed now i was looking to order them today and have them fitted next week :angry:
