    Default Front Spacers? Pics please...

    As title, Know some of you have full sets of 20mm's etc?

    Rear pics are good too

    I have snowies and 25mm rear and 16mm front but I'm thinking of maybe pushing both another 5mm or so, till the face is flush with the arch lip?!?

    Mines borderline there now, thinking of just getting a 30mm+ made again for the rear and my 25mm cut down for the front...

    16mm front do catch a little if hit a bump on full lock at slow speeds, but its probably the inner arch liner as I've not managed to deform my wings... Yet lol

    Are your fronts proud of the arch or bang on?

    The Pic with snowies, I'm guessing no spacers then?, wonder if your new wheels have similar offset to snowies?

    I've spaced the estate 20mm all round too... looks so muck better on the rear as they are big arches to fill! The fronts sit pretty much the same as Caveman_Nige up there.
    The actual reason was more to avoid the stupid speed square things that seem to be breeding round Luton.. it now almost straddles them now

    I have 245/25/19 on them
