    Default Dilema.. help required

    Had some 18" vauxhall alloys delivered the other day along with some new rubber to go on them. went today and had the tyres fitted to the wheels but as the guy went to fit the wheels they fitted snug to the hub but then also against the huge calipers of the signum. so im in need of some spacers and extended bolts im guessing. Anyone know where i can get them??

    i thought vauxhall alloys would have been alright but obviously i was wrong..

    it all depends on the offset of the wheel....

    if you do fit spacers, make sure you get bolts extended by the same amount...

    roadhouse wheels sell them via their website

    yeh.. had a guess it could be the case.

    the offset of the alloys is 45ET, Does anyone know what they should be for the 3.0CDti signum ?

    with a 5mm spacer they'll be et40. my wheels are et45 and I've fitted 10mm to the fronts to clear the calipers. just make sure the wheel centres up ok on whats left of the spigot, I had to have some custom ones machined up that fitted the wheel without the plastic spigot ring. www.wheels.uk.com can get hold of what spacers and bolts you need but you may have probs with longer locking bolts. one way around this is to use a threaded stud and a locking nut.
