Smile Hello from Australia :) New Rukus owner

Hello all, just a quick hello from Australia, I just picked up a 2012 Glacier White Build 2 Rukus.
First mods will be Wheels & Springs, Springs are 25mm lowered King springs, and after much thought and test fitting, a set of Matt Black 19x8 Advanti Samurai's (see attached test fit pic) with 235/35R19 Tyres. Springs I'll fit tomorrow, wheels next week (these wheels have not been officially released on the Australian market yet, and we need the wheels for the product launch)

Thank you all for some inspiration to do some more mods in the future, I'll be sure to post some more pics when I take some.

Congrats! Put some pix of your Rukus in the Introductions forum for us to see
It looks like that wheel isn't going to fit..?

I'm in Brisbane, and yes those wheels will fit, (25+ years in the tyre industry tells me so). I got the springs in today, looking good, hopefully I'll take some pics tomorrow.

Finally, wheels are on, springs are in. Another bad pic, but you get the idea....
I think I'm getting the modding bug back.....
Waiting for a sunny day off to get some better pics

NIce and Clean, What size are those rims again? The top pic looks so much bigger than what they look like on the box.
