hmmm bit small? If I remember rightly standard longbeach tyres are 205/50/15 - 6.5J. So your total wheel circumference is gonna be quite reduced.

To be fair you probably dont give a toss! I do tend to get a bit anal about these things  :whistle:

Needs serious lows :)

Noticed how many miles out your speedo is?!

In order to pull off 14's you'll need to be so low that the subframe will be dragging along the floor :whistle:
