    Anyone seen or tried these kits before?

    Just curious also if any of you use spacers did you need longer wheel nuts?

    Do you mean normal spacers or pcd converters?

    I use 5mm spacers all round. Anything bigger than that i would say you need extended bolts.

    I have 15mm H&R spacers on mine, bought them from motorsportworld.co.uk and they provided longer bolts with them. They list all sorts of spacers and whether you'll need longer bolts or not. Well worth it if you need thickish spacers, I ended up with about 3 turns on my original bolts! No where near enough!

    I'd like mine out a bit more but with the ride height its not possible without getting the arches sorted. The back tyre is nearly through the metal in the back arch as it is lol.

    Hubcentric have a lip for the wheel to rest on, much better.

    Here is a pic of the lipped ones.
