    Vehicle : Vectra Hatchback

    Trim : Life(well it was)

    Engine : Z19DTH

    Year : 2005

    Mileage : 166000

    Default Wheel spacers

    im finding my alloys are fouling on the inner arch/chassic leg on full lock (go 18x8 bk999's) was thinking about shoving some spacers/shims on all the way round, either 10mm all round or 10mm front 15/20mm rear.

    just wondering if people had any experience with them and what effect it would have on handling etc as im looking do track the car this year ?

    I have no fouling problems,!! I run 8"x18" with 235/40 tyres, lowered with Eibach's i think they are ET35 which means you will need spacers to get the correct offset.
    The 4 wheel alignment is an absolute must do...................... my rear suspension was well out!!

    yh mine is dropped quite low on fk streets, it is only the n/s wheel on full right lock and yes it has been laser aligned, twice actually, might just throw some 5mm ones on and see what happens
