I have 15mm at the rear and 10 mm at the front and my car is also running KW v3s - looks great - fills the wheel arches nicely. I wouldn't go anymore than this :151:

Ideal sized spacers with the standard wheels are 20mm rear and 10mm front.

I looked into doing this, im gonna get a price for spacers tomorrow, as the wheels just look "lost" in the rear arches

Have thought about this but was worried about whether this causes problems with the wheel alignment? Is it just a case of put the spaces in, then have the wheels realigned as normal?

Also, so you need longer bolts or are the standard ones long enough?

Wheel spacers do not effect camber as they are equally spaced 360 degrees. Lowering of the vehicle effects camber.

20mm or 15mm at the back and 10mm for the front, correct.

Dirty and lowered - poor pic I'm afraid



The only picture I have before the V3s were fitted - doesn't show the spacers too well

Here is Dan32's car with 15mm rear and 10mm front - with no lowering - I am sure he won't mind me posting this pic.
