    What size spacers have people used that are running 19" alloys and lowered suspension? i have read a few reports of tyres fouling the arches on bumpy roads if you run the usual 15mm rear/10mm front spacers on 19's. Does anyone have any experience/problems running this size spacer. I am in the market to lower my car (prob about 25 - 30mm) and get spacers but dont want to start scuffing my arches or liners. Thanks.
