    Yeah I put that on hold it will be touch and go to get them to fit even shaving mm's of the hub and the brake disc.

    Not sure about the sizes to be honest mine are compomotive th wheels with a ET49. The Rota slipstreams are a very nice wheel, what J are yours 6, 6.5,7?

    yes modifying lips is definilty a possibilty.

    I just looked up and the standard offset for the GTE alloys is ET49. And if I am right the higher the number the more the wheels stick out towards the outside of the car.

    The wheels are Rota slipstreams. I bought them years ago because the package of 4 wheels + tyres seemed resonable.

    started a topic Wheels too big

    Wheels too big

    I put on my new wheels but it looks like the rear wheels are not going to clear the arches if the wheel moves up. The guy that sold them to be was 99% sure they would. I haven't driven it yet. Is there anything I can do? Can I get a machine shop to shave some metal off the inside of the mating face of the wheel?
