Sorry to hijack the thread, but I've just bought a set of 147 17 inch 5 spokes for my V6 GTV. Before I buy spacers I've a couple of questions if anyone can advise??
Firstly I was going to go for 20mm on the back to try and fill the arches a bit (an extra 10mm after taking the difference in offset into account) and just 10mm on the front to address the offset and so they will clear the caliper. My questions are.. Is 10mm enough at the front or should I go for 15mm? And would going to 15mm on the front cause any issues with the steering?
Secondly, has anyone fitted bimecc hub centric spacers to their car. Looking on flea bay they are about 40/50 quid cheaper than the equivalent h&r items but seem like half decent quality. Anyone any experience with them??
As always thanks in advance for your thoughts and comments!

Go 15mm for the front.
Have you made sure they will still clear your Brembos though?

Thanks for that David.
I've had them up against the hub (well almost lol) and I reckon they should clear with 10mm, with 15mm they most certainly will, just wasn't sure if 15 was too much on the front wheels.

The issue is with hubcentric 10mm spacers there isn't much metal at the join from the hubcentric bit to the spacer bit. So 15mm is safer.
