    Normally coil over springs are a smaller diameter to give you more room....

    mines dropped 100mm on supersport coilovers with adjustable carriers removed and its not even close to rubbing with 19s. Im going to go down the spacer route as thy seem to look too tucked into the arches.
    Where did you get yours from?

    Search saab spacers too, as sometimes the 5 x 110 pcd ones are cheaper then the vauxhall ones...

    Anyone else running spacers as i'm planning 20mm rear and 8/10 front possibly in future...

    you shouldnt get any rubbin with those setting even with the lowest coilover settin.

    im runnin coilovers with 225/35/19 tyres, with an ET35 and want to get 20mm spacers for mine and there should still be a bit of room left.
