Wheel arch pics

imported_mustwin1 Aug 2, 2004

  1. Managed to finally get some pics of the wheel/arch situation. I wanna lower the baby by 35mm, not sure whether it will be possible /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Rich, sorry i've been slack, I still haven't worked out what the offset of the wheels are, maybe these pics will help, I will know for sure by mid week.

    Cheers /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Right,

    To me it looks like the offset is too small. You need an ET35 (ET32 absolute minimum). They look like about ET25 to me /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

  4. Thats a bit of a bummer! Can I get the wheels machined down to the correct offset?

  6. No i've been slack, I let beer get in the way of productivty this weekend /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Will get the correct offsets as soon as possible, mid week latest. Appreciate answering my query is a bit tricky without all the facts and offset figures /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Is that tyre to arch damage in that second pic of yours?
     
  8. I hope not, the car hasn't moved since the wheels were put on /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif At first I was worried about wheel arch rub if I lowered it, now i'm just plain worried /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
     
  9. Bit tricky that though, I sold my golf for a cash + these rims, and I assumed that these would have the correct offset as they are Audi wheels. Obviously I was a little naive, but hey hum /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
