    Unhappy *URGENT HELP PLEASE* Just put new wheels on

    hi everyone, i have just bought some JADE R wheels this morning from a bloke second hand, he informed me they were off a B7 chasis, which is my car, but 20" rims, put them on, and they rub on the wheel arch when i tip the car too much, is there anything I can do other than sell them on?

    *UPDATE*
    just called local garage and they have informed me they can roll out the wheel arches for £300, is this a good idea? will it knacker my car or the look of my car?

    Hi, please can you post the offset of the alloys and the tyre profile that you are using. Will help others chime in

    Thats the perfect amount of poke right there.

    I say take the 2 front screws out of the liner, maybe add a little camber to the rear, and get some thinner tires stretched on them and you'll be fine.

    love em, could really do with finding a workaround, wouldnt mind shaving a few mil off and rolling out the arches and altering the camber if it would work! don't want to spend silly money though, they wasn't that expensive to justify alot spending on making them fit
    anyone point me in hte right direction please?
    sorry to sound like such a novice but i have been a bike man all my life, a car was a three letter swear word to me till i was 28!
    this is my usual ride

    I had no idea what offset was until putting this post up, (nieve moron who believed what the seller told me) going to change them back to the originals and see what they are this morning, I will post back and dependant on how difficult it is to make them work depends if they go up for sale on here, lol!

    I have had a go on a few R6's and find them to be too harsh a ride for me as I like longer ride outs! I used to have a zx6 but found because it was a 6 I was in the red everywhere I wet, 1000 is the way forward, deffo worth the extra bit of weight, takes getting used to the different ride style but fun for longer I thought! each to their own bikes though!

    If these were the ones for sale on pistonheads then he had them on an B7 RS4 and they can take bigger wider and lower offset wheels because of the wider arches

    I'd flog them an get some 19s - personally don't think 20s look right on the B7 - too much wheel

    I agree. These look all wrong; totally out of proportion to the car.
