    Make sure you get the right width and offset if you get 18s. If you get 8.5s, you need to get as close to the original offset as poss. Mine are a bit too wide really...

    Yours are to wide , i've got 9j's and +17 offset. Now the camber is adjusted they stick out a fair bit from the arch!!

    I'm guessing that wont pass MOT??

    Are the arches hitting?

    Wow, 9J+17 is amazing. The arches don't look to be flared either?

    I thought mine were pretty borderline (9J+37, camber approx -1.5).

    Mine arnt borderline, they stick out about 30-40mm from the arches, if not more.

    No they didnt hit round the track, you can get two fingers on top of eachother in the arch gap but thats all.

    Ideally need then flaring, although it would be a big flare, or get those rear quater extensions.

    You'll be surprised how much the arch will move down on a tight bend.




    Conversely, you'd also be surprised how much they tuck-in when the body rolls.

    this looks like its got a flare. I want about the same on mine but archemey (off sxoc) isn;t sure it will work out very well. He said hes done a fair few lip rolls though.

    Has anyone had a rear flare elsewhere?
