    On my 8.5 upfront they are et45 but have a 15mm spacer and is pretty close to the arch, couldn't go that much more due to the tyres would fowl, but I am fairly low. Not a great helping answer but may point you in the right direction?

    I'd say max 20mm rear and 15mm front.

    Let me know if you need any prices.

    spacers ?

    When you lot put spacers on (and presumably get longer bolts) do you bother finding longer locking bolts?

    I have the standard ET43 18x8 wheels and they do look very tucked in. I'd like to fit spacers and don't plan to bother with locking bolts- the wheels aren't worth enough!
