    That's some big width! :yes: The only thing i've know is 20mm adaptors which would be pretty similar i imagine, the customer said it was fine.

    I've got 15mm spacers on all wheels (front&rear). It looks like this is about max for the car. Already I see that because the wheels are more outside the car, the paintwork suffers because of chipping in the arches...

    I wouldnt like to use that wide spacers in front but i need to because there is not enough clearance with those CH´s and my Porsche calipers.

    Rear one´s are from Powertech and fronts are custom made. I used 20mm longer bolts and shortened those ones for front wheels about 8mm.

    No there is no scrubbing even at track on heavy cornering. In front I think that 10mm is enough because then wheel is same level than car body. Now i got my wheel few mm´s over...
    My wheels are 8.5" wide ET35.

    How much would a set of 20mm rear and 10mm front cost? and how do I go about getting the right bolts?
