    Hi All

    I have just had the new wheels fitted 19x8.5 et 45 with 225/35/19 and wondered which screw in the rear wheel arch needs removing to stop rubbing?

    Dont ask me how low it is but i cant get a straight finger under the arch but will have it raised soon as

    Apologies i know its been mentioned but cant fin the thread

    Second question i have weitecs coilovers fitted and can adjust the fronts but cannot adjust the rears the mount just below the movable nut moves as well is anybody else having this problem?

    Cheers

    not sure about the screw, as for the rear coils, i think maybe you should jack the rear of the car up so theres less pressure on the spring and also try tightening the adjuster on the spring cup.

    I'd have thought you'd be able to identify which screw it waas as it would have a cleaner head than the others due to the tyre rubbing it.
