    Default Out of interest

    Has anyone run spacers on their Vec C? If so what are the widest tyres they have put on?

    This is more out of curiosity then anything else......... But who knows what the future might bring

    running spacers doenst need a change of tyres.

    spacers will just push the wheels out.

    but movin to far away from recommended offsets will put extra strain on bearing and other suspension parts.

    Sorry,

    I meant more in terms of the ability to put wider tyres on it.

    right i see.

    from my calculations, so not definate, I could fit 19x10" wheel on the back with an offset of 35 (ideal for the vec), so tyre wise I would be usin something like a 235/35/19 or 245/35/19, but this would give a little stretch.

    I think I could get 19x10.5" wheel on the back with an offset of about 30ish. but this would probably poke the wheel rim out side the arch needin the tyre to be stretched.

    Im currently lookin at doin one of these options, if the right wheels come along.
