i agree with marrk! when i bought this last set of rims i was going to fit them without the spacers (i've moved handbrake support) i got them second hand off ebay cos new with tyres they are 1050 quid!! i cant pay that kind of money new for a set or i would have got et30 not 35, the main reason why i got the rims is i've got a big brake set up ready to go on my car, brembo family b calipers (ferrari f40/f50), 322mm x 32mm 2 peice disks and hats, so i needed a wheel with clearance, speedline are good motorsport wheels so you'd think the clearance would be fine ??? wrong! front of the caliper hits the spokes of the wheel!!!! lucky enough the wheels had been on a car with hubcentric spacers with a center bore of 65.1 and 10mm thick!!! just the right size! all fits well!, just got longer bolts! only use the best spacers and bolts! or none at all! :nono;Marrk said:http://www.carbibles.com/tyre_bible.html
Loads of good info here!
Realistically you should buy wheels which don't need spacers....I have 2 sets of 17" one set 7J and the other 7.5J I run 225/45/17 on the 7J set and 235/40/17 on the 7.5 J. No rubbing even when fully loaded or bottomed out after leaving the road.
Spacers are not a good idea IMO but if you do ensure you get longer wheel bolts to match spacer thickness.
17x7.5" et35 w/225/45/17 tires on mine, no
. H&R springs/Bilstein HDs w/SAS poly spring pads in the rear.
Clearances are pretty much nil. Only thing you really need to do is relocate the e-brake cable bracket in the back to the inside of the trailing arm.
