    Hi,

    I am currently lowered 35mm with 15mm spacers on the fronts and 20mm on the rears with 18x8j ch wheels and I have no rubbing or clearance issues. I'm sure someone on here will be able to advise on 20mm all round.......

    What are the offsets of the BBS CH?

    I ran ET35, 19x8.5" rims with 235/35 tyres, the rears catch under load with 15mm spacers, no problems with 10mm. ET32 18x8 alloys with 225/40 tyres, the rears catch ever so slightly under load with 15mm spacers. This was with the rear camber set to 1 degrees after lowering.

    Sits very nice, but with out the actual offset figures, it's kinda pointless to say the wheels don't catch with 15mm spacers.
