I cannot find a definitive answer in the forum
I have some new 17"/ 8J ET35 wheels with 225/45/17 tyres for my V6 Spider
1st question is, do I need spacers?
Compared to other wheels, say the option 17" Wheel, 7.5J with an ET of 30.5, my calculations are:
The new wheels will be 4.5mm nearer the suspension because of ET difference, plus 0.25" or 6.35mm because of the wider wheel = 10.85mm nearer the suspension.
What spacers will I need so that the wheels/ tyres do not foul the suspension/ Brembo brakes?
Will 10mm, 12mm or 15mm spacers work?
Some folk don't like the 10mm, because the flange can crack because not enough metal - anyone have experience of Eiback spacers, either 10mm or 15mm
I have attached a pic of the wheel - Veloces of London supply them either ET35 or ET40.5
