Hey guys, I have BBS CS-5 alloys on 225/45 tyres, and I am looking to get some JOM coilies next month and drop to about 35-40mm at the moment, and I would like the tyre/wheels to come flush/just inside the arch line, but no poke and was wondering if anyone knew which spacer sizes I will need?? The wheels are ET35.

Cheers.

hold a spirit level vertically against the wheel arch (you may need another hand) and then simply measure from the spirit level to the wheel (make a note).

Then measure from the spirit level to the arch/where you want the wheels' face to be, and then subtract the second measurement from the first and you have your required spacer size (adjust +/-mm according to taste)
