Wheel Spacing Question

Post by drstrangevdub » Wed Apr 24, 2013 9:39 pm

Wheel Spacing Question

I have a VW Scirocco2 and I want to fit the following wheel tire combination.
The fronts fit fine, the rears rub. The question is how many millimeters of spacing do I need.

Car:

Scirocco2

OZ Racing F1 EVO Cup
7x16 ET 37 Center Bore S

Tire 205/45 Z16 87W

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know how much spacing is needed. I tried 8mm spacers on the back but the rim did
still rub during aggressive cornering.

I guess what I am looking for is a chart somewhere on the interweb to advise me further.

Thanks :)

Is it rubbing on the strut? Or the fender? I dont quite understand your question?

Thanks for the replys,

The wheel is rubbing on the strut side.

I found this video on wheel spacing that answered my questions, thought i'd share with the group:

If anyone knows of a chart, I would still be interested in that info. :D
