    Default 20mm spacers anyone?

    Is anyone running 20mm spacers on their Vec?

    I'd like to see some pics if you are please if poss.

    It'd also be useful to know your ride height if it is also lowered or whether standard SRi or Elite suspension etc.

    If he's just compensating for wheels that have the wrong offset for example, then it wouldn't handle any differently. Add them to wheels that already have the correct offset, and yes it could drive poorly.

    I take you have tried them on your Vec C; so in what way was it horrible?

    I had an Audi previously and had 20mm spacers all round and it felt no different but it did look rather nice with the wheels filling the wheel arches a lot better.

    theirs no difference in the way it drives with 20mm spacer if anything i find it better on roundabouts
    i bought my 20mm spacers for a aftermarket set of alloys which still didnt fit so i left my spacers on and refitted standard gsi alloys
    been on for around 3k miles and had no issues at all tyre wear all even and alot of people coment on how full it makes tthe wheels look in the arches i would recomend to anyone this mod

    car is on standard gis springs and shocks

    That looks nice

    I notice you had mudguards too; is that because you get more stones hitting the paintwork?
