Yours look to sit further out on the rear. Are you running spacers? What et are yours?

25mm rear and 5mm front I think the advert said. They do look like they stick out loads, so not surprised you had scrubbing. Looks good with the wheels spaced out though.

Wow, 25mm on the rear; I have 17mm on my Bathursts as they were rubbing on 20mm. I remove them when I put the RWs on, though as I said I was considering a set of 10mm for the rear.

They're quite bulky.. I'll see how it goes after I fit coilovers, though I'm told the fk high sport don't sit too low on the rear.

They sit quite well for 25mm but will rub if you don't change the profile.

how does the rear arb feel when you chuck it round the twists?

Pretty solid to be honest, minimum body roll.

Whiteline is the only one I'm aware of, there's probably more about, decent value and it's adjustable! :thumbsup:

Feels normal, just a lot better in the corners, gives you that extra bit of confidence :)

Just got the new rubber fitted!

165/50/15 went on nicely, rims were horrendously corroded!

Anyway, loads of arch gap, but no more scrubbing!

Ordered some new bbs centre caps too! :)8045AF18-55D1-4406-9772-3537CC641783_zpsF9481DCD-761E-4F0F-8CEE-7F991479A720_zps70F47845-6FCA-40B7-B8C4-9FBC497318AB_zps

No I didn't use the cloths after they'd been on the floor ;)

Love the RW with that tyre...

What I have planned over the coming months:

Refurbed wheels
