    I am looking to buy some wheel spacers for my car when we're in the US later this year(free delivery) I've found some hub centric ones on ebay which consists of 2 @ 12mm and 2 @ 20mm plus a set of new bolts. I took some photo's of my mucky car today to, hopefully, show how much room I have in the wheel arches.

    Any constructive comments appreciated, thanks Tony. 001.jpg

    Leave it alone, that is the way it is. If you want boy racing, buy something else........

    Tony get a length of wood that is wider than the wheel diameter, put it against the the wheel and centre of the arch and score the top of the wood or use a pen, measure the distance from the edge of the wood to the score mark or pen mark, and then subtract 5mm for the arch lip and that is the maximum size spacer you need for those wheels, personally I would use H&R track plus spacers, very good quality and perfectly balanced. I reckon you will need 20mm per side.
