    Wheel arch pics

    Managed to finally get some pics of the wheel/arch situation. I wanna lower the baby by 35mm, not sure whether it will be possible [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Rich, sorry i've been slack, I still haven't worked out what the offset of the wheels are, maybe these pics will help, I will know for sure by mid week.

    Cheers [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]

    Right,

    To me it looks like the offset is too small. You need an ET35 (ET32 absolute minimum). They look like about ET25 to me [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    Thats a bit of a bummer! Can I get the wheels machined down to the correct offset?

    I hope not, the car hasn't moved since the wheels were put on [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] At first I was worried about wheel arch rub if I lowered it, now i'm just plain worried [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    Bit tricky that though, I sold my golf for a cash + these rims, and I assumed that these would have the correct offset as they are Audi wheels. Obviously I was a little naive, but hey hum [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
