Can you direct me to the size of spacer i need and whether its necessary to buy hubcentric rings for the rear wheels which fit without the spacers? also the offset of the rim is ET40+
cheers in advance, great thread have learnt a lot from the 15 or so pages ive read but 83 pages means this will be my bible till i workout the right set up!
205/40 or 215/40 are closer to the correct diameter. You also want that wheel's offset down to +20 to +27 or so. Check the offsets and see what spacers you need.
