Looking really nice mate, the wheels look perfect. I have just ordered some other wheels in the same size, 8x18 at the front and 9x18 on the rear. I am sure the rears will fill the arches up as they are an offset of et30 but i am sure the fronts wont (8x18 et35), just wandered if you had put spacers on the front and if so what size?

thanks

Alex

Cheers mate. My fronts are also 8x18 et35. I only have 3mm spacers up front, just enough so that the inside of the wheels will clear the coilovers. I did have 10mm on there, and although it looked better I had lots of scrubbage, and also vibration above 50/60mph. They weren't hubcentric spacers, hence the vibrations.
