Hi,

Anyone out there got a picture of their LCR 225 with wheel spacers fitted??? Using standard wheels & sus etc

15mm rear & 10mm front OR 15mm rear & 0mm front OR any pics with spacers fitted on a LCR 225 will do ;-)

Cheers all

Cheers mate ;-)

I see you have 10mm on the rear but none on the front ;-)

Last thing i want is the wheel stick beyond the body work haha.

Think i will opt for what you have, just the 10 on the rear.

Depends how long you are going to go I'd say. I have 15mm and have gone through the plastic arch liners right next to the metal arch.. Looks cool though :cartman:


15mm rear, 0mm front.

I now run 15mm all round and handling is much improved :) turn in became much sharper and more accurate with front spacers fitted.

i be keeping STD sus set-up for a while so i assume with 15mm i will have NO arch rubbing plus i think the ride height on STD sus i ok.

Sorry to bring this up again peeps BUT before i place my order id just like to ask a question to see what other people think.

I have decieded where i am going to get my 15mm spacers from as they are only £35 delivered HOWEVER i have just been browsing on the internet and on tuning websites mentioned on here and some of the prices some places charge for wheel spacers is crazy, some are charging £80+ if not more.

Why are How can this be? Surely a spacer is a spacer?

some are just metal pricing for some reason like HnR are expensive. just light weight and good material i think used to make them where you can get some steel 1's both do the same job.

its up to you what you go for.
