    **-**-**-**-**-** Thread Hi-jack **-**-**-**-**-**

    Will these fit ok?

    18's 7.5" wide with 225/40x18tyres and et42

    Think they will, although wont look to good, will be right in under the arch, but will they miss the suspension (Coilovers)??

    P.s. there for drifting, not to look good.

    Jus had a good look at the new wheels and the suspension today, they seem so close together at the front, is that why people have to change their camber setting so the wheels wont catch the suspension??

    So what is the side effect of having camber change to adopt the wheels size?

    depends on your suspension is it stock? if they are too close you will need to get a small spacer. maybe 5mm... camber adjusts the angle of the wheel, -in, +out

    I fitted my coilovers on Friday and have found the front spring shelf very close. I'm keeping an eye on it, but I may get away with it be adjusting the pre-tension slightly. I don't really want to have to add a spacer....

    i had to put a 6mm spacer on my fronts, the spring and the tightners were rubbing against the tyre! the teins which i had on there were rubbing for ages and eat huge grooves out of the inside wall...

    I've got some spare 5mm spacers, but I really don't want the wheels out further...
