They are approx 1" taller than 225 45 15s, you may need to jack the ride height up a bit if you can...

Loads of room in back dont forget ive tubbed the arches. Front turning radius a little concerned but ive trimmed bumper down too. Im hoping it is a noticable improvement in gearing too as coming from rotarys nice to have a long pull instead of alot of gear changes. Its got the power n torque to accomodate.
Time will tell. Ive been helping my mate fit btcc slicks on a bmw compact so if i can get that to work the 5 should be fine. Lol...worse case scenario ill take the battery angle grinder to Thruxton.60c2c1eaebe16886e2610358a0aa5717.jpgc9cbc9fe22e8d6f3dd297477d5aeaa68.jpg

Ive just taken delivery of a full Kraken system and high mount manifold to replace my BEGi set up. It's nice kit and came beautifully packaged. What I do find a bit strange is that it looks different to yours where the kraken logo is - lacks the raise background. I wont be happy if I have to start altering the bodywork to make it fit.

 

I can't believe youve got so much weight out of it - that will be a real weapon.

Mine is direct from kraken, via unit 3 as he buys them for his drive in/out conversion.
Apparently mine is latest version after a recasting.
Im using my original downpipe so youll be fine.
