Hi,

I've just bought some alloys,
They are 19"'s 9j/ET48 and 10j/ET45
I'm planning on fitting them to my pre lci on standard se suspension -
However what spacers would be recommended if I wanted to lower car in the future?

Will a 20mm spacer in the back and 10mm in front look good and not require arch rolling?
9J/ET38.. 10J/ET25?

Thanks in advance!

We recommend ET38 rear, and ET38 in the front should be okay. What tire sizing are you going to run?

You might rub a little bit with 20 mm spacer at, especially if you lower it depending also on your tyre size.

Those specs sounds like X5 Wheels??

255/35/19 tires will rub on the rears if the offset is +25 on a 10" wheel.

just get the fenders rolled and you're good

Right, after your guys help I've gone for 15mm spacers front and back, i may increase them in the future,

However I'm worried about rim damage on the rear -
Online it states 255/35/19 has a BIGGER sidewall than 265/30/19.

However I'm worried about potholes,
Which tyre would be the most rim protective for a 10J alloy?

Thanks

Think I'm going for 265/30/19 as I think that's the more protective option?

Yup, a 265/30 would be fine
