These look like 18" GT cloverleaf wheels? Rare as hens teeth!

indeed they are, it was my number one wheel to get for the GTV, my favorite by far.

if i had a red car i would have colored them like this, but since i have a black car the silver works.
i saw a black one online with a set of cloverleafs but i cant find the picture. got it for a good price 400 for the wheels and 400 for the tires.
Prices have gone up significantly since then.

Are you using 225/40s, are the wheels ET 35?

If yes then with 20mm spacers the rears should be rubbing.......?

Wow! Your Spider looks amazing! Congrats. How is the ride with the Novitec coilovers? I have coilovers myself, Koni Sport with Vogtland springs, and the car drives amazing at speed, as good as my stock Nissan 350Z. But it is a bit harsh over slow bumps.

even with 18" there is some sort of comfort! however the car is steady as a rock. A bit harsh over speed bumps..

If you have 20mm spacers each side on the rear I'm AMAZED if it doesn't rub, especially with ET28s, only the rears not the fronts & only under full compression....not just normal driving but hard bumpy corners or when landing after a large bump or 'jump'?

Of course if your springs are so hard maybe they reduce the wheel movement & create their own 'bump stop' limit, or the coils touch which also stops the wheel from moving further upwards.

Without reducing the suspension travel, running an equivalent ET of 8(28-20) the outer edge of the rear tyre must touch somewhere under full normal compression position.

With original springs, it rubbed at the rear wheels with 10mm spacers.

As you said, there is just not enough travel in the suspention now.

So 10mm spacers each side, making an ET of 18(28-10). This did rub, as you say, due either to the wheel/tyre being too far out or no bump stops fitted?

Lowering uses up the initial suspension movement, not the last where rubbing/clearance issues are normally experienced, so unless fitting larger bump stops(unusual) then the springs must be reaching the point of being 'coilbound' & preventing the wheel moving further up......also the suspension stops working at this point as well.

Here's 'an experts' view I found on the web: Take any coiled spring, for example one from a retractable ball point pen, squeeze it until all the "coils" are touching and it is "Coil bound" It will not compess further.

The term is most commonly used in car suspension when the wheel moves up to the point where the spring is fully compressed and coilbound. It indicates that the wrong spring rate is being used (on rally car for example) or that the spring has weakened through age or use and needs to be replaced. When spring is coil bound the suspension will not absorb the bumps and driver could loose control.

Could also happen if someone has "lowered " a car and not engineered the job properly.


But if your car looks good & drives well I'd ignore his last comments.

I have harder shocks based on koni's rear damper + spring with more coils than original. the wheels start do slide before the wheels rub.

At the front there is a KW based coilover.

They used to rub at the top under full compression with original shocks.


Don't mind my fualty english

Rubbing on full lock. Phase 1 TS. 225/40/18 ET32. Cant get the liner any further forward, its all the way on the AC cleaner. all screws are in and in place tightly. 20mm eibach and Bilstein B6 fronts, KYB rear. only the very front here is rubbing. any tips, or just live with it?

Is it lowered as well? I've got 235/40 18 on mine. Just had to put 10mm spaces on to stop rubbing on the inner arch. Never had rubbing where you are showing in your picture.

I think it might be because it's lowered or because it is a PH1. Someone else might know.

The phase 1 arches are different from them newer ones. Phase1 with lowering will at some point touch the archliner.

I'm going to put some phase 2 ones on mine, as they touch a little on full lock

Change to later inner arches, they're flatter. Lowering doesn't make any difference, it just shortens the suspension travel. It doesn't alter how far 'up' the suspension travels, bump stops determine this.

Pictures show 225/40 18s + Eibachs -20mm.
