Hi All,

Just some advise on best spacers for my set up considering i have the larger and slightly wider aftermarket wheels.

Car is not lowered in any way but may consider this in the future

Thanks all,

Gareth

Is it a sportback or saloon?

How wide are the rims and what is the offset?

This should pretty much the information we need to help you :)
 
with standard suspension you are flush upfront with the arches but the rear will take 8/10mm spacers (This is all unless you specifically want poke) If not then that's your max, (Also assuming the 3 door has the same rear arch dimensions as a sport back too)
 
on the rears you may be ok but but just on the edge of poking the fronts will be poking by 10-13mm
on 8.5 J you should be flush with ET45, so on the front you are already poking by 1mm in theory

Thanks all for your valid and friendly advise :)

Wasn't planning on putting any on the front and just go for rear spacers so 8mm is best for a flush fit !!

Assume i will need extended bolts as well?

Thanks
