    Hi there, I have recently installed a set of 19'' BBS LM reps ET45 and now cant help thinking that the wheels need spacing out a little bit! The problem is that I don't know how far out they should go...

    I was tempted to go with 5mm fronts and 10mm rears but have doubt in my mind that maybe I should be pushing them out a touch further. Any advice would be greatly welcomed!

    The car is currently on standard S Line suspension but I am adding B5 spring plates to the front to drop it an extra 15mm this weekend. Also, my wife drivesthis car daily and I will get strung up if we experience any rubbing...

    I have spoken to the TT shop and am waiting for them to come back to me with prices etc. Is there anywhere else worth speaking to about getting them? (preferably in the south east but willing to travel!)

    Thanks for your help,

    Phil

    I have the same wheel's. I'm running with 15mm rears and 10mm front's make sure you buy hub centric spacers. There are no rubbing issues. The car is lowered on eibach spring's and shox.

    As mentioned 15mm at the rear and 10mm at the front is a very popular option.

    I had et45's with 6mm spacers all round. Just bought a pair of 15mm's for the rear though as they wouldn't catch... Happens that I've swapped my wheels now anyway and the rears are 9" wide so fill the arches well and so far no rubbing.
