Thats the second time they have been listed, was going to have them last time but that 10" on the front is just a bit to much.:(

Do you think they would fit on the front without a stretched tyre?

Wasn't me that let the cat out.;)

I would say no.

They would need stretch front and rear I reckon. If the fronts fit at all, you would lose lots of the turning circle.

Buy another set of 8.5j the same. And create two staggered sets. Big money for a staggered set of these I reckon !!!

iv been watching these as well.

iv got the borbet A version on my van, 10x17 et20 on the rear but 8.5x17 et13 on the front plus mine has 15mm wheel arch extentions.
the 8.5" on the front are barely legal with the arch extentions, to run the 10" on the front you'll have another 15mm of poke again!
