it'll be VERY VERY tight and you'll need to run a 215/35......

My ET45 8.5J rims used to rub when lowering on Eibach's, so safe to say ET35 will rub.

But did you run stretch Pete? My Helios when I had 10mm on the back were ET35 with a 215 and that rubbed, with no arch liner either! But thats a 8.5 and not an 8J. Hard to tell...

No, I'm too old for that stretch malarky ;) I misread the original post, I thought he'd said 8.5J. With 8J I'm sure it'll help, would be surprised if it doesn't rub at all though.

might, just MIGHT get away with ET35 on a 8" wide wheel, best to trial fit really. I had 9" wide on ET41 and that did rub, but only sligthly.

It will rub for sure!!!! Especially when someone will be sitting at the back. You can slightly fix this buy grinding the screw that holds the rear bumper on the sides.

You had 225s, mine didn't rub with 215s Terry.

They do have them, JSWS3, as I've been in the shop and seen them! I know another place in Manchester that sells them as well.

http://www.mswuk.com/contact.html - The Manchester Branch has them, as I saw them when I picked my tyres up!
