bit of a stupid q but in evry1s opinion will the wider wheels require longer bolts/spacers or kno the best places to go for the wheels?

also will the wider wheels cause faster wear on suspension,steering or wheel bearings?

thank u all!
Get the wheels in the right offsets,and longer bolts/spacers won't be required,your existing bolts will suffice.
I'd advise getting some better locking wheel nuts,the OEM ones are far from secure,so put some McGards or Grayston lockers on your shopping list.

The wider wheels will cause no problems for the steering/suspension nor bearings,but it's always a good idea to get the wheels aligned from time to time,especially if you're fitting new rubber onto the new wheels.

Pop your P/code/town into here:

and find your nearest centre,expect to pay up to 100.00.

Looking into BBS-CHR wheels your best fitting wheels are the following:

Front - 8.5J x 19 ET32
Rear - 9.5J x 19 ET35

Your existing tyres can be swopped over,alternatively you can upsize to:
Front 235/35/19
Rear 265/30/19

The BBS - CHR are available in satin black,anthracite & silver,places to buy:

I'm sure there are other places,but I'm sure you know how to use Google,just like I do

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
