How hard is your suspension mate? Put my new wheels on and they catch, dont really want to roll the arches, have you rolled yours? Maybe I should go harder springs...  Hmmm

My suspension has no give at all on the front, rears used to catch on the koni shocks/springs but now doesn't.

Aren't your new wheels 14's?

Yeah they are, but my wheel arch gap looks similar to your 13's
I turned up the damping 5 clicks on the rear and it was rock solid, bounced everwhere, was horrible, if anything it made it worse, seem to catch more!

Are they just straight on as well with no spacers? what tyre sizes did you get?.
they're ET26 them comps if I remember right? so shouldn't really rub, would be rubbish if you had to get camber shims or had to roll the arches :s

..or what Pete said.

Yeah that's not a bad idea, got 20mm spacers on the rear and none on the front, rears have a little poke, maybe get a 15mm spacer? I really don't want to roll them as they are good condition

The offset is confusing as fuck, says 14-35 et, so what the hell does that mean lol, I went for 195/45 toyo's look awesome :D
The thing is I like that the rear j's slightly wider than the front

Get 15mm spacers? Or try 2x5mm one side to see first.

14-35? maybe the 14 is the diameter.

If they're ET 35 i'm not surprised they're rubbing on a 6.5J with 20mm as mine are ET11 with 20mm spacers :s

Nice one Pete :) I have those two 5mm spacers dosing about, I'll give that a go :)

I don't think that is the offset, it's only catching a little bit, right on the inner arch plastic, will get the belt sander and skim a little bit off to improve things

Et11 stick out more than et35 though...

Oh yea sorry, brain dead

scrubbing has got to be related to the spring travel mainly. One of the main reasons I got harder springs was to stop my scrubbing.

I'm worried about going to hard incase it bounces around lol. Just had another look and there is quite alot of poke, reckon they could go in a little

180lb springs on rear and 250 on front I think, front is quite alot lower yet it doesn't catch

well finally made the effort of fitting the stage 3 PPS subframe after painting it black.. terrible photos but sure most of you know how it looks.



Gave it a clean/polish also;



got hold of a tape holder thing to fill up the gaps in the dash.

I attended the early edition show on the Sunday. Rather disappointed this year this show was a lot smaller, starting to go of the vag shows recently to be honest haha.

Anyway thought I'd use the opportunity to use the G40, weather was nice so got a photo of it cleaned up :).
