    well I've got 17mm Hub centric wheel spaces all round and I'm running 19" started rubbing tinny bit at front but only on the inner lip if you go to a performance shop near you and get it rolled up abit it's all good and the back rubs on the plastic in the rear but pull it out and your good to go mate

      yes thats what you need, i have been running 12mm spacers for some time now, car feels more planted. Also helps the wheels fill out the arches

              I dont think you have to change the bolt length as the adaptors bolt directly to the hub using the existing holes.

              Then you bolt the wheel to another set of holes in the adaptor itself using the same bolts

              Correct me if im wrong anybody Loll

              This is for PCD alteration mind but i assume the same principle goes for spacers!

                      what!!!!! jeez. would a rarb be a better mod for that money???

                      i got some spacers at home the about 10mm. had them on old car. but the old man said unless i get longer bolts there no chance of putting them on because her said power im pushing will shred the bolt lol.

                        ive got both and had spacers on first and made a huge diffrecne to the feel of the car. havnt got my dap rs yet but with them should be metal round corners. handles better than my mates and hes got dap r spring and rarb. is very worth the money but yeah you probs would be better off getter a rarb first then start thinking about the spacers mate. i would just go to halford see if they have any longer bolts mate

                          heard good things about this website....

                          apparently there be able to sort you out with longer bolts etc.

                          hopefully there will be a stand at PVS selling spacers and bolts.
