Anyone one running wheels in this size & offset?

Just wanting to know if much arch work would be needed when lowered -60mm.

Had those size on mine, lowered 40mm. Had rubbing issues with passengers in the back (all 3 seats).

At a guess, arch work will be needed when going.lower.

Mark, my original bbs rm's were et.33 and 6.5j with 185/45/15 tyres at -60mm it needed minimal arch work.

At 7j and et.26 I needed to trim the plastic nuts and roll the arches with 185/45/15 tyres

You can literally pull or roll the inner arch, I had to do minimal work on it so the nuts cleared the 185 profile tyres. Do the arch work with the plastic trim removed and when you re bolt it, it will shape to the arch nicely.

my blue ones where ET35, 6.5J and mine was only lowered 30mm but obviously more with the engine weight. at first i tried to just bend the arches out a bit, kind of like rolling them a bit but the 205/50/15 r888's still rubbed a bit so i just cut the arches off



tyres you thinking of running on them?

Just to give you some idea of fitment and tyre sizes, my OZ turbo's are 7x15 et33 running 165/45's and tuck nicely when fully aired out with only a bit of rolling of the rear arches.



My OZ route winter wheels (which are also 7x15) are running 185/45's and they're a nice slight stretch.
