    Hi,

    Car's going into APS again for a few things Brembos,Coilovers etc.

    Just wanted to ask some-one in the know how wide i could go with spacers before i take it down there. Reason i ask is they'll need to be on for when the coilovers go on to get the stance looking right.

    I have 18x8 Wheels with 225/40/18 Rubber Mille Miglia Porsce Cup 3's.

    Im thinking 10mm Front and 25-30mm rear? What do you think? Is the easiest way to get a ruler and measure the space between the arch and the wheel?

    Cheers..

    what offset are you'r wheels jason? I reckon any more than 20mm rear will stop you winding it down as far as you want to.....

    10mm front should be good though.

    I think your crazy!

    i had 15mm on the rear, and although they did look good, they murder wheel bearings! The suspension system is not built to take the kind of strain spacers inflicy on it. Quite costly to replace bearings unless you have a press or the technical know how or even the desire to get dirty in this **** weather contry!

    Dont have a clue about the ET im afraid.

    Maybe i should just order the suspension get them set up and fit the spacers afterwards then?

    Cheers
