There are a load of numbers all over the tyres, only one of which was consistent on all 4. E13, would that make sense? Other numbers were C35 (on one tyre; 44 on another), and 026 with a symbol next to it indicating a measurement of some sort. Any ideas?

I'm dropped quite aggressively so there is minimal rubbing on big dips. Link to pics is in my sig.
Loving that look mate! Did you find that the spacers by themselves improved the look significantly? I'm liking how much better your wheels fill your arches (inboard/outboard as opposed to vertically) than mine, it's a much sportier look.

Thanks. Yes planning to get bolts with the spacers so they're the correct length. Don't want to put any additional undue stress on any of the parts. Can you reccomend a manufacturer? I'm thinking 20mm on the rear and 12/13mm on the front.
