A larger offset will only alter how far in the wheel sits in relation to the hub & therefore bodywork. The problem you'll encounter is tyre clearance on lock & under compression, due to the larger diameter(s). Believe it or not Alfa designed the arches to a fairly close tolerance for the correct wheels/tyres.
Surely all your racing experience taught you this?
"Surely all your racing experience taught you this"
without looking, it appeared to me that it was the inside edge fouling both the spring seat and liner...hence the offset / spacer query - if the rim is offset by spacing, I am under the impression that it moves the inner rim edge and thus tyre more outboard...actually i think a certain Andreas taught me most about suspension....a long time ago! (more commonly known as Niki) - whilst 'all my racing experience' had its moments, incl practicing with Divi G in F1 and Gerry M saloons (enough name dropping?! - No?! - helped Frank Costin & Gerry M with Big Bertha development, owned Vauxhall / Marshall development Droop Snoot (Chevy V8 mule), first homologation M758 Porsche Turbo to feature: sodium filled valves, hollow spoked forged alloys, 'Le Mans' 6 pot brakes - flew with Master Duckworth Costin (Cosworth) & Morgan (Ilmor) - practice lap record holder for 2 seasons, Brands saloon car, against allcomers (incl Mr J Stewart, same car, same conditions in support F1 race) - incidentally, I dont recall mentioning my racing experience had any depth, but since you raised it, it was FAR from vast as funds were too tight - and before you ask, my flying experience was less than a couple hundred hours - still not bad without an engine most of time
- Also involved with importing, building and testing of first Rotorway Exec 'kit' hi-performace Heli - Can we go back to just basic ignorant queries about Alfas now, as thanks to illness, I am not the man I once was and dont need endlessly reminding of it by being 'needled'
