Looks great! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> Any rubbing on the rear? Looks like there could be under compression. What brand spacers did you go with?

I am glad you like it <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><br>no rubbing at all. H&R spacer. Today I had 3 people in the back and no rubbing on a 60 mile trip. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Looks good, especially in the back. What are you running for lug bolts?

Re: Some Pics of My Car with the Spacers (volvotool)

Wagoneer, Thanks for your help. I knew you would recommend me the correct size. There is this one hump, that when I hit it at a decent speed I do rub, with or without people.<p>Thanks VolvoTool, I am using H&R bolts, part number HR12754501

Don't worry about big bump rubbing. Soon that .5mm of liner will rub off and you won't rub anymore. <p>I definately found the limit for offsets. Had 3 big guys in the back seat and it was rubbing really bad over every bump. Some scoring on the rear tires. I'm getting out there to roll the fenders on the first warm day (a lot easier to do when it's warm outside). I may go down to 5mm spacers... haven't decided yet.
