Got the coilovers on today and went to fit the original GSI wheels and the inside of the tyre is touching the coilover Spring. Am I right in thinking some flat 5mm spacers will do the trick or would people use hubcentric ones? I read somewhere unless your going bigger than 10mm flat ones will be fine and TBH I'm struggling to find anything less than 15mm available in hubcentric. What have people done before? Cheers

I have 8mm hubcentric ones available mate, I had 5mm universal ones and they were a pain in the ass every time I took my wheels off

Where did you get those from bud? Do they clear the coilover and the arch?

Always best to use hub centric ones where possible

Yeah that's exactly what I'm thinking.
I'd rather not use any TBH but I have no option if I want the car lowered

I've used flat spacers in the past (5mm) and fitting/removing the wheel was a right pain as there wasn't enough of a lip on the hub left for it to sit on.

Much better with hubcentric. They're not expensive, so worth getting.

I bought them off someone on here can't remember who though.

They fitted fine with 15" wheels and FK Coilovers wound all the way down, just the outside of the tyre rubber slightly on full lock.

I've still got them if you want them mate
