Dan - any rubbing issues? Are you happy with the offset (I know you have spacers in the front)? Could you space the wheels out further or do you think the current setup is OK? Appreciate your comments.

lol...

offset s good, no rubing yet, maybe if you really pushed it, remember i have KW varients 3's too, makes it firmer. I think i might go 10mm wider on the back, i'll try and see what happens..

ps i am a Pro Photographer ... www.dgphotos.com.au

Are the KW's the reason why you needed the spacers up front ???

I was going to say I felt creativly challenged trying to compete with your photo's but I don't feel too bad now that you admitted to being a pro. Great photo to complement the great car.

Hope you don't mind me jumping in Dan.

Dans new wheels have an offset of 45 front and 38 rear. Previous was 37 front and 39 rear. Both new wheels are 1/2 inch wider than the former ones. The new front wheel has 17mm less clearance on the strut side and retracts 5mm on the wheel arch side. Dan had a 10mm spacer (I think) fitted to the front to correct this. The new rear wheel has 5mm less clearance on the strut side and extends an extra 7mm toward the wheel arch. I was interested if a spacer on the rear is viable without causing the tyres to rub on the guard? I suspect a 6mm spacer could be fitted - maybe a little more.


The KW's make no difference to factory clearance on the inside of the wheel but of course the car is MUCH lower so you have to factor that in. I'm awaiting delivery of my V3 coilovers from Germany - thus the interest.

I was hoping to fit ROH 3 piece wheels but when I ordered them I was told the factory has had a major failure with one of its manufacturing machines and are unsure if they will repair it. After 4 weeks of agonising over wheel choice I finally settled on a wheel and now they can't make it! AAAHHHHHHHHHHH.
