hi i have a seat leon mk2 1.9 tdi stylance and i was going to put some bbs ch style replica alloys on but i have heard that the alloys are way to far from the arches for some reason, is this only with bbs or any alloy wheels and the only way around it is lowering the car???

correct. PCD needs to be 5 x 112.

18" with 225/40 rubber should sit nicely.

I think also you can go 2mm each way but will require some minor 'tweaks'

the offset is 35 on the fronts and 45 on the rear. stick out like the bolocks on a bulldog haha

Always have the wider at the rear.
Which ones rub? My car has 40's front an back and are fine.

Put the 35's on the back and 45's on the front! If it still catches you can invest in lower profile tyres and get thinner ones that 'stretch' for example 215mm instead of 235mm.

What about the 19s that the new Cupra R is equipped with? They are 8X19 ET 51 thats the stock offset and they will not rub the arches if you are the same height as a Cupra or up to 5mm lower..

The place u bought them from shud never have gave u 35 and 45... that offset is totaly wrong for the car. Should be 45's all round.

i was running the same alloys with 45mm offset and 235 width tyres and got slight scuffing on front arch liner over bumps...

i'm now running the same alloys but with 225 width tyres and the car is now lowered 50mm... believe it or not, not rubbing one bit!

i'd deffo get on the blower to the place u got them from an say they have supplied the wrong fitment for the car.

ok maybe im getting confused with the offset, the wider ones were at the back, i just took it for granted that 45 would b wider that 35 :S and unfortunately it was a private sale and me, not really knowing jack about wheels, thought they would be fine

see the higher the number...the further the wheel sits inside the arch... lower the number, the more it sticks outwith the arch.

even with putting the 35s on the back i'm not 100% sure u'd get no rubbing. Suppose you can only give it a go.

Get us pics up, 45s on the front shouldnt rub. i have the same wheels, and when i had the 235 tyres on and standard suspension, i got very slight scuffs when hitting big dips at speed.

no, the main reason the rubbing stopped was due to switchinf rom 235 tyres to 225s..
