    Wheels + tyres acquired, spacers acquired, extended wheel bolts acquired.

    Now I need washers to convert the 60 bolts to flat faced Jaguar style nuts, which have an 18.5mm diameter shank seen here in figure A.

    I'm looking at these Peugeot conversion washers, which as far as my research tells me, only have a 17mm diameter shank, but they are the closest that I can find.

    Will they do the job, or can anyone advise me what to do here, as getting these wheels on is taking years off me lol.

    Cheers Dave, that's encouraging.

    Ok, wasn't going to put any pictures up until I actually had the car lowered, but would like some opinions now before I actually proceed with that.

    The car is my daily, and I carry very big loads pretty regularly. Should I stick with standard ride height, or can I consider a drop?

    Here's two bad snaps of how she sits currently.
