    That's some big width! The only thing i've know is 20mm adaptors which would be pretty similar i imagine, the customer said it was fine.

    I've got 15mm spacers on all wheels (front&rear). It looks like this is about max for the car. Already I see that because the wheels are more outside the car, the paintwork suffers because of chipping in the arches...

    Rear one´s are from Powertech and fronts are custom made. I used 20mm longer bolts and shortened those ones for front wheels about 8mm.

    cool, sweet cheers once again. P.s. Do u find any probelms with running 20mm rear (in the way of scrubbing on the wheels) when going over bumps or other things?

    No there is no scrubbing even at track on heavy cornering. In front I think that 10mm is enough because then wheel is same level than car body. Now i got my wheel few mm´s over...
    My wheels are 8.5" wide ET35.

    How much would a set of 20mm rear and 10mm front cost? and how do I go about getting the right bolts?
