    all depends on the length of the bolt.

    I think you may get away with 5-10mm. 15 at the most any further and youd probably have rubbing problems. It is dependant on what offset your wheels are too

    never realised some people were so blooming helpful.

    i know exactly what is required but i am after peoples opinions who have possibly already done this and to see if anyone knows what the max is that you can space it out by without having to roll the arch or anything

    10mm either side, got them off a mate for free. but if was buying i'd have probably gone even wider. just so it matched the front arch more... looked mint tho IMO...
