    Default Wheel Arch Gap

    I have the Design model and was just wondering is the gap between the tyre and the wheel arch too big. Seen a few Design's and my gap looks larger.




    Cheers

    Hi, I have the smae problem with my Veccy SXI - Previous owner changed the front wheel coil springs. Could this be the problem?

    I have a 15cm gap and can honestly say this is not normal as I have seen many similar to mine without the gap. I have 16" rims whith trye size 205/50/16

    Can anyone recommend me the correct spring that I can replace and see if it makes a difference.

    Sorry about the essay - this is my first response - One more thing you guys are fantastic and doing a great job here. I have saved £££ Thank you for you hard work.

    Shaka, you've also got the wrong tyres on your wheels, they should be 55 profile, so your tyres are too low profile, hence why the gap to the arch will look even bigger.
