Re: Borbet As (Ambrose Burnsides)

whats in the fronts?
With 16x9 ET17 in the back i can run 195/40/16 tires and should be fine my worry is the front with 16x7.5 ET0 and I will run 165/40/16,,,,,,I'm not sure if this is a safe buy.

Re: Borbet As (UBER_EURO_mk1)

mine are 16x9 et25 up front...7.5 with et0 might be a little too much
I dont have any good angles for the front but you can get an idea with these two


you guys have 165/40/16's in Canada? damn

Where are you comming up with these crazy offsets? Type A's are 16x9 et 15 and 16x7.5 et 20.Ive never seen a set in the offsets you are talking about. The white car you posted has the offsets i just posted so et 0 up front will look retarded.

It was mentioned in the post. Strange ET's here give.
The Borbet A come in 16x9 ET15 (only) and 16x7.5 ET35/ET20 depending on Season
