    evening all

    just put my new rims on. was thinking about spacers but dont think i can go much wide as my rears are about 5mm from the inner arch?

    the fronts can be pushed out 5-10mm.

    what you guys reckon?[​IMG][​IMG]

    It looks nice mate. Id leave it at that the back looks right to me and its hard to see the front in the pic but tbh i find it hard to judge things from a pic anyway.

    cheers s3dave

    bengal.... i am happy with the rears but could go wider, but i dont think you can get 5m hubcentric spacers,

    ill get one of the front tomorrow, also its not sitting right up front yet, need to lower it more but arb issues,
    in 2 minds at the mo.... FK or the whiteline ARBs??

    Cheers all. I was thinking about keeping the standard sport alloys but keep scaing the floor!

    S3 Paul.... It will be lowered more at the front aprox 10mm but arb issues with the drive shaft, tried drop links but made it worse soooo new arb!! What are you guy using? I've heard good things for the White line ad it apparently goes under the drive shaft?? The other one was FK ones?
