Do our R cars' front and rear wheels' have track widths equal?<p>I ask, because if one puts 10mm spacers in the front and 15mm in the back, would not the track of the car be different? <p>I presume the addition 10mm/15mm is to correct the appearance of the car only, and that if the body were removed, the front and rear track widths are really the same.<p>Thanks.

Re: R cars front and rear track widths equal? (Mash)

<TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Mash</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">I believe that the "trac width" is the same. Staggering spacers from front to back (10mmF-15mmB) Will be just fine. I run the same spacer setup in the winter. It looks great and it hugs the corners a little better. I hope this helps, Rick</TD></TR></TABLE><p>According to Volvo's web site, V70R's front track width is 60.8" and the rear track width is 60.2"...<p>So converting to mm =<p>Front= 1,544.32mm<br>Rear= 1,529.08mm + 15mm spacer = 1,544.08mm<p>By my calculations, this equals out the track widths within .24mm<p>Not too bad! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Most, if not all FWD cars have a wider front track and don't be fooled, the R IS a FWD biased car
