For you guys who've played with spacers and adapters, what width would you want for spacers on a 240 to fit FWD wheels.<P>Any ideas on rubbing? I'd like to move the rear wheels out a hair or so as they appear to set into the car more.<P>George

You may want to talk to Rob about this, but basically you want to add a spacer that changes the offset of the car to that of the FWD wheels.<P>Front: FWD wheel offset - 20 = spacer thickness. The spacer will end up being about 20mm +/- 3mm.<P>Rear: To space out the wheels a little, add 3-5mm per spacer on the rear axle.<P>

George, Michael is right. I use 23mm spacers on the front, and 26 on the rear. I still think it needs more in the rear. I'd like to try my friend Chris' (242GT) 28mm spacers and see if that's enough. But if I find 2 more 18" Triton rims, I will need even more, cause their offset is 45. If I find them soon enough, I could sell you my spacers...<P>Rob
