    Actually looking at going back to factory rims.
    I can get a mint set of bf aggressor rims, which should suit it.

    What made the T3 work stance wise was that increased offset of the rear 5 spoke wheels on the TS from memory. That helped fill the rear guards, improving the stance. They continued to do this on the B series FPVs. If you go factory try and see if you can find a set of the 5 spoke 18s .

    Yep, that's been in the back of my mind when considering factory rims.
    The t series rims are becoming really hard to find for a realistic price, especially a full sedan set of the five spokes. That's one of the reasons I was considering the bf rims. Similar rim design.

    I'm also considering a set of these.

    Would need custom hub adapters, both pcd and offset are way wrong.
    But at least then I could fine tune how much they fill the guards.

    Gave the exhaust system some love today. The original one was leaking and was poorly welded. The new one is custom made and larger in diameter.
