Took a few quick pics of the Granada at my office garage and a few on top of the building too. Wheels are BBS RM 15x6.5&7s. I think I'm going to put the 7s up front and make the rears 8s later. I need to change out the rear pads to get rid of the rake or raise the front a little. But I'm liking em for now..

Nice Ray! I've got a similar spring pad issue (both still in) but im pretty set on going lower rather than raising the front. The RM's look great - you've done an amazing job with them and I can't wait to see them at 8".

Not to thread hijack: I just got the tyres mounted on the RS's today and they are now on the car. Not sure if its worth posting pics until I do a full shoot (or wait for the silver centre set to be made..) or anything but im stoked I have NO rubbing (with 2 people in the car, and a boot full of Alpina's and tyres on them). Awesome!

Yeah.. these look great. I agree with the rake issue. What suspension setup do you have on this?

It was leveled before but the rear pads were off. After re-adjusting, it raised it back up. GC front coilovers, shorten MK1 strut housing, double adjustable rear Konis.

Glad you like the RSs! CJ really knows his wheels and suspensions!! Get a proper photo shoot first

Very nice. Perhaps a "tad" too low fro comfort at the front, and a tad to high at the rear. ;-) Will look great with 8" rear wheels. But it might be a strecth on 205 tires... But hey, let's try.

I'm going to try 205/45 but I think it will max out at 195/45 on 8" rears. You will be surprised how nice this rides being so low, very very comfy. Just have to watch out for potholes. : )

I'd vote against modding the wheels. They look great now. Stretch looks awful, especially on a classic car. Just raise the front a bit to balance the stance and it's perfect.

I'm with you on the stretch look but I do love wide lips!

R U running Ground Control coilovers on all four corners? I have a set in my e30 with Koni top adjustables and I love them. Always wanted to put a set of GC coilovers in the o2 but I am not sure if Koni makes a top adjustable rear shock for the o2.

Car looks awesome..
