Looks like spacers are needed, making the chance of scrubbing high. What offset are they?

Get yourself some 5mm spacers the, it'll push the wheels out so you can get the caps on and also make the wheels sit more flush with the bodywork

ermm well the wheels have grown on me alot, i use to hate them, i think they look quite good now,

but thats about it,

front i hate
rear i like
sides i like

i just dont think it all fits together well,

as in i dont think the parts match up,

but thumbs up for being different, its just not to my taste,

as well as pulling donuts in a car park and revving a 1.2 around

1.8 Discs and calipers maybe, but they all have ABS (not sure if it affects things)

both the sri models 1.4 and 1.8 have 260mm front discs and the sxi has 240mm same as the 1.8 sri rear.shouldn't have thought that the original car having abs would affect things.v6 veccys usually have abs but work on the corsa b
