    Thumbs up Arch rolling

    anyone on here ever had there front archs rolled on there vec c ?

    am running 20's on about a 60mm drop (coilovers) and its catching the arch every now and then on different angles

    i want to get them rolled so i can lower it down more , and just wonder if anyone has had this done as the lip isnt really that big


    the rear is fine btw due to the way the camber in more when lower


    if it cant be done am thinking about having the front wheels machined down for a lower offset or as a last resort fitting a smaller profile tyre


    cheers

    yeah..I had 20's on before with 45mm drop.. but needed to do archwork when i fitted 19's(wider offset) so i know my 20's will go back on no probs now.. gimme a shout if you need more 'diy rolling' info.. I should have took more pics and done a 'how 2'

    Thats not a bad price.. you'll have no probs once they're rolled.. the only probs i had was with the 19's as they were a 235 tyre on a 8" rim opposed to a 235 on a 8.5" rim.. the slight stretch took it away from the arch on the 20's.

    yeah you'll sort that no probs.. i know the lip is short, but after flaring mine too gained a good 8mm+... you may need to mod your liners.. i had to chop mine back a little but am going to get some more so i can extend them.
