    They are actually quite easy to clean especially if you use a mit and then a soft brush

    Thanks guys, agree BMG, i have ordered some Colinite 845 and will be sealing them before they get used, so they are on the car but its locked in the garage.

    Size wise i went for 18 x 8 fronts ET35 with 225 Maxxis and 18 x 9 rears ET22 with 255 Maxxis so plenty of dish

    BMG, do you think i need a spacer at the rear, any pics of your stance from the rear? The Colinite 845 turned up at the post office so i have sealed the rears, just the fronts to do tomorrow, it is good stuff, used to seal paint finishes on marine and aircraft applications and should last 12 months.

    You could have spacers, but small ones
    I don't use them

    I threw my 30mm spacers on yesterday tp see what the difference would be, they bought the wheels flush with the arches, decided it would look better 10mm smaller so have ordered some 20mm spacers, will post pics soon, so good call at 15mm Liam
