    From what ive read on here the 15's will rub at speed over bumps.

    Looks lovely , i'd give it a little drop also , H&R's if your skint , coilovers if your flush.

    Yeah I have read about the rubbing thing...I think it is the screw that is rubbing againt the tyre. I will try to put a smaller screw and see if it helps. Hopefully it will:yes:

    Them spacers make it look good! Nice car matey :)

    I'm still waiting to fit my 10mm all round, I'm tempted by 15mm at back but if it rubs then maybe not! What does it rub on phantom? Leon put 15mm on his didn't he?

    10 mil will rub too.

    I was having a bit of drive in the north york moors and on the some of the more severe compressions, the back tyres give a rub. Going to have a look at fitting a smaller screw myself. The road I was on was a bit of a rally stage and very bumpy, on day to day driving i've had no probs!
    Whoever it was that mentioned when they rub you end up pulling a bit of a face was dead right!!!!
