    Evening guys,

    Thought I'd ask a quick question regarding Rolling/Pulling my rear arches.

    My rears are as low as they can go (at the moment, custom springs will be ordered as soon as I sort minor rubbing) I still have the adjuster in so there's a little more to come.

    Besides that my 18" 9.5 et 40, rub ever so slightly on the inner arch. I have 235/40 tyres which I know are a little beefy but don't want stupid stretch! They only rub on fairly big dips in the road with the kids in the back so they're is obviously some room in there.

    They poke ever so slightly maybe 5mm? But that's with standard camber and everything untouched. I'm thinking if I add camber it's the inner corner going to make a lot more contact as that's where it touches if that makes sense?

    So if I add a spacer to get away from the inner and get the arches rolled AND they'd need to be pulled too otherwise they'd poke too much?


    Is anybody still with me? lol If so any ideas ?

    Can you not just raise it a bit or try a 9" wheel?

    Already got the 9.5" alloys, raising is an option although like how it sits at the moment.

    I had 3sdm 0.01 on my a4 b7, rears were 9.5j and unsure of offset.

    They rubbed at first, but I adjusted the hub so it cambered the wheel. This helped and it stopped scrubbing the arch.

    When the wheel is off, the top bolt on the hub adjusts the angle of the hub, try angle it abit until the wheel clears the arches.
