I am assuming that the alloys have an offset of 35mm-30mm and the inside of the tyre is catching on the height adjustable platform on the strut (coilovers). I guess you have coilovers as you should not have this problem on the standard suspension.The insides of my alloys are rubbing on the stutt(if that what its called) part of my suspension when i turn hard, i have 18"rs4 alloys, what do i need to do
Double check the offset, but if you have an offset of 35mm then I think 8mm would be about the max for the front... only my opinion though!!!! and you may need to get longer bolts and your locking wheel nuts might be to short to use, but double check. The rears should be OK with 15mm spacers, but beware re longer bolts and locking bolts, with spacers this large it might cost a lot for very long bolts.i need to know where n how much too
I think your wheels will be 30mm... to check you could call the place you bought them from or normally alloy wheels have the offset written on the inside of one of the spokes.. may need to remove the wheel to check, but first try calling the supplier...how do i find out my offset?
I hope after all this help you are going to vote for my car?????...... LOL ( http://www.uk-mkivs.net/forums/295467/ShowPost.aspx )rang the suplyer n the ofset is 35mm so what do you advise mate ? get some 5mm spacers?
The main problem with coilovers is the height you set them too.....Hi, i,m a little confused as to why some 8 inch width wheels will rub on coilovers, i thought the whole point of coilovers was so that you could lower all you like, and that it shouldnt touch the wheels!, ive got some alloys which are 19 inches by 8 inchers across and they have an offset of 35 mm, if i fit my coilovers on and lower it to be either the same drop as RSGOLFS or about 5 mm lower would i need spacers as well, as i dont want them!, if so i may have to buy a complete anni golf suspension setup as they are the lowest drop from the factory!.
Do you have any pictures so Hz2921can see at what height your tyres will hit at...mines realy low mate, the spacers cost next to nothing and are effective, coilovers are good as i slam it for everyday and wen i need to eg wen i went to southern france i was able to higher it so i could have lugage n not bottom the car out on the drive down. the aniversary kit in my eyes aint that low
