    Need some help on wheel offsets

    Hi all
    Not too technical when it comes to wheel fitting.
    I have been given a set of Rover hairpins off a M8 which look similar to BBS`s and have had the centers bored to fit the corrado.
    Now these are standard Rover 45et and the raddo is 38et I have added 10mm spacers but the tyres are still catching the plastic arch protectors on full lock any idea what I will have to do to adjust these so it misses.The wheels are 16" and 6.5J.
    Thanks
    Dazz

    Hi Caz
    They are 205 50 16.
    These I believe are standard for the rover

    I reckon your tyre profile is too big, I checked that versus my standard VR setup and those tyres are 12mm higher, use www.willtheyfit.com to enter your old setup against the new and you can play around with tyres sizes to get the ones that give you the closest match to original

    They probably will scrape the liners on lock drop the profile to 40's

    I have room on the outer rim of the arch so would another 5mm on the spacers sort it ?

    195/40/16 or 195/45/16 is what is needed. Whilst you might be able to get the tyres to work with spacers they'll look crap and are too big for the wheels and car. Do it right, or put other wheels on.

    Thanks for the blunt but informative reply Baron but to be fair the tyres do look too big for the car LoL
