Stop it !!!

How do you found rear arch clearence - rubbing ? I am concerned as I already have issues with 8.5-18 with a 35mm offset with 15mm spacers so a 20mm offset and they are already on the rim.

Now as I understand it these porsche reps have a 49mm offset with a 9.5inch width rim will they fit and for my own benefit how does the ET work ? as I imagine I will need hub adaptors ?

I have lowered her quite a bit and had 1 person it the back and it didnt rub at all. Tonight i am gonna have 2 people so i will let you know, but TBH i honestly think it wont rub, as the stretched tyres give u so more room and clearence to play with!

Yes u will need et adapters, with 49et wheels u will need 20mm rear adapters. Which will give u 29et (49-20) which would be cool with a stretched tyre. Ideally the higher the offset the better as then u can play with the offsets to achive the perfect fit.

cool I was not usre if you had to take into account any extra calcs for the additonal inch on the rim.

Oh dear my loan runs out in August so I am either going to start saving or just get another bloody one [:$]
