track width?

Is it ok for the front wheels to be spaced out further than the rear?

I fitted new alloys to mine today and used 15mm spacers on the front. I think I can get away with no spacers on the rear - although it is close

Without tyres nothing seems to be catching or getting in the way. Suppose the moment of truth will be when I get some tyres fitted to them

Crap pics to follow

155 tyres ok on a 5.5" wheel?

If the tyre doesn't state a profile what that likely to be? (155/13)

Re: track width?

Yes, different track front and back is fine Gaz.

I'd prefer a min of 165 on a 5 1/2 but a high profile 155 should be fine.

If i remember right the profile is about 82% when not marked.

cheers Damon

Damn , they be bigger than what I got now.

On standard wheels I think I would be ok, but the alloys stick out loads and it may do some damage

I think I will have to suck it and see

Alan, them wheels you took to mitcar, what tyres where on them? They looked mean
