    Yes perfectly fine with standard sri setup, and they are safe. The hubcentric spacer bolts on the hub and the wheel bolts into spacer. I have 25mm ones

    If your undecided on size yet get some string with a weight on and place it inside the arch, you can get an exact measurement and know how far you can go

    25mm sit my 19" snowflakes out just right. (Only on rears) the sri wheels are only 7" wide so dont be shy to get more than 12mm ones!

    Interested if you ended up doing this as I'm currently considering it, so some pics would be good.

    Doesn't matter about wheel size as the diameter is roughly the same, as I said above use a plum line to get the mm you need due to different widths... The 2.2 link below in my sig shows mine, I think?
