I have a set of RS`s in 16*8 front(ET20)and 16*9 rear (ET24)and the rears are currently wearing 245*45 rubber (over sized and wrong profile i know). WOuld like to try 225`s if they fit but some people have recommended against this in the past.
I have the BBS RS Wheels 16x9 in the rear and 16x7 in front and only use a 5 mm spacer up front.
The rears are marginal as is. With 2 big guy in the rear seats it will just scrape the sidewalls.
Tires are 225-45-16 all arround
I have read a little about rear wheel spacers, 15mm seems to be mentioned quite a lot.
Has anyone used them with 16 inch factory bbs alloys ?
What was the results in terms of road holding and wheel clearance ?
