    Wheel spacers?

    Hi all, just a quick question regarding wheel spacers, i am thinking of adding some wheel spacers just so my wheels fill the arches a little more,although mine is the sport and sits a little lower they could do with a little more, so my question is this: does anyone have spacers fitted to a standard sport set-up,what size did you use,any pics? and is there any disadvantage to fitting these ( extra strain on wheel bolts ect ) i know i will need new bolts,and finally where is the best place to source them as i only want puccer stuff.
    Thanks for your time,
    Matt

    I may be interested if mattyboyc isn't. Have you got some before and after pics from when you had them on your b5? I was thinking of putting these on mine, however will it make that much difference? And will it not damage anything?

    Ahh nevermind. Can you get some pics up when you got them on the car, mines the same as yours so would be good to see what they are like. You keeping the standard 17's?
