    what spacers are people running?

    hi, my car is sitting pretty low on coilys, an on 18'' 8.0 et35 dare lp560's wheels, but as you find the wheels on the rear are sitting well too far in the arch, an on the front there still in abit, so just wondering what size spacers people are using!?

    or is there an easy way to work this out?

    im guessing its gotta be around 45mm on rear with 20mm up front? iv tried measuring but with the wheel sitting in the arch so much its hard to get an exact measurement,

    im after this sort of look with the wheel sitting out a little bit, my tires are stretched a little bit also.

    any help would be appreciated!

    if you went for 45mm on the rear then they would stick another ~8.65mm out further than mine do. With 40mm spacers then obviously they would only stick out another 3.65mm further than mine do in the pic.

    I think mine stick out plenty enough as they are. If i had a wider wheel/tyre then i could probably get away with more poke without it looking odd. But you have 8" wheels with 205mm tyres. Something to consider...

    My porsche adaptors are 40mm but the offset on the wheels is around 52 so going as wide on standardish offset... a little bit wild me thinks

    20mm on the front would sit a further 6.35mm inside the arches compared to mine. No bad thing - my fronts chuck mud up the doors and the side windows because of how far they poke out. It's the price I paid for squeezing Brembos under dished wheels
