Finally picked up the Speedlines from East London yesterday, spent all morning giving them a good clean but still had some tar spots on the inside of the wheel which I'll have to sort out with hopefully another product! Anyway I tried to fit them myself only to find the wheel nuts simply would not budge!
I went to the local tyre yard and once they got the front wheel off, they fitted the Speedline only to find that it was in contact with the suspension arm!
Currently on the Standard S-Line Springs with S-Line 5 Spoke Alloys on 225/40/18.
Speedline wheels are: 19X8.5J - PCD 5x112 - ET48 - Centre Bore 57.1 - Tyres 255/35/19.
The guy at the garage told me to get some spacers so that I can clear the suspension arm but I am not sure which size I now need!
From my calculations, the following will bring the ET down:
10MM - ET38
12MM - ET36
15MM - ET33
Which is the safest bet for non rubbing of the arches, and clearance of the Suspension Arm & Calipers? I also wouldn't mind running a staggered offset with the rear larger than the fronts if that is possible.
Thanks for your help!
