if I find that after the TII engine swap I need bigger brakes, I'm going to put a set of these turbo 2 cabriolet bbs wheels on it... they are 15x6.5

Those wheels are cheap for a reason. That shine won't last.

Pete here you can see my KÜWE 7x15 38mm Front 205/50/15 and Rear 225/50/15 i drive these for over twenty years with good results. This was testet by the german TÜV on the Hockenheim Ring :lol: (optional 205/50/15 without fender work).
Better you can get ET 35mm for bigger distance between tire flanke and suspension.

195/50/15 all around on 7x15 ET 38mm is also possible

Thanks Thomas, I do love the Car colour & wheel centre co-ordination. Do you still have the wheels?

I like those wheels myself and have had them on my ebay watch list for a while.
Think I might be tempted to get them with black inserts to match my paintwork if i ever get my car back
