hi all

thought id try my new wheels on for size as im still waiting for the other 2 to arrive.Got my tyres put on and stuck both wheels on and realised that the front wheel is clear of the brake caliper by about 1mm at most [facepalm] so is this reason for concern or not ? the wheel spins freely without catching but boy is it close, closer than i'd have liked if im honest !

so id like peoples opinions on the matter, is this acceptable clearance or would spacers be advised ? i took a few photos on my phone to give an idea of how close they are. i managed to put a piece of cardboard between the caliper and the rim and it stayed put so that shows how little space there is lol

excuse the bad picture quality ive got a few better ones but my digital camera has to charge 1st
