What size tyres you got on those wheels? I may be putting the steels back on my van as am fed up of all the bumps on my 18s always sounding like the van is going to explode! Like the look of yours!

Yeah i agree with the spacers.should put 20/25mm on the back really.Do you think it would foul arch? arches not been rolled.
i do like banded steels. but its money as usual. i got these wheels and there pretty straight so sticking with them. 17/18 alloys no way for me.bump bump bump.then it ruins your day when you hit a nasty pot hole or you kerb em. have run 215/60/16 on steels, these are 205/55/16 (continental so sticking with these for now)T:

Nice
T:
what did you use where the fogs normally go ?
I just bought some cheap fogs off ebay, Took bumper off and lay it down flat.easier to work with.then cut 2 rectangles of plastic out where fog recess are in bumper. made some brackets to hold lamps in place then secured and sealed with a good quality seem sealer. re fit bumper,then wire up
no probs

I think that 20mm spacer would fine may even get away with 25. Colese on here would probably be the best person to speak to, i think he sells some good quality hubcentric's. T:
