What size spacers would you need with 13" alloys?

All depends on the wheel. Quite a few split rims happily fit over 256mm brakes without silly offsets.

the vast majority of 13" wheels wont fit, not even close.

some will, usually ones aimed at motorsport.   Some compomotive wheels are pretty good for this.

I think a compomoive CXR is known for having a lot of brake clearance, would like to get a hold of one to try.

I tried MB mini alloys once and I think they would have fit with a 20mm spacer or a better offset.  Split rim type job.

Just i wouldnt mind getting some 13's to run slicks as 14's are not great size.

May have a look into comp's then.

Jezza- Try mine this weekend if you want, I've got ET20 and ET0, the latter won't fit with your arches.

Phil- What offset on the tramont? Mathers always used t run spacers, even with 239mm single pot caliper  ???
