    Default 19" snowflakes with SRI suspension

    i am wondering with my SRI being lowered 15mm over standard (correct me if wrong) but would 19"snowflakes catch the wheel arch's on the back and the front when on full lock ??

    so:
    will i need wheel spacers on the front to allow for the added 20mm across (mine 215s ad snowies are 235s or around that) or would i be okay just to bolt them on and be away

    the rears would they also be okay to just be bolted straight on with the added diameter will these be clear from the wheel arch's when going over bumps and such i dont fancy hearing and grinding or rubbing noises


    cheers in advance lads

    Vehicle : Vectra SRi

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi 150

    19" Snowies shouldn't catch on standard SRi suspension (mine don't) and my old Vectra was lowered 30mm (actually 30mm on 45mm springs) and that didn't catch either.
