ok so ive done some research on what will cldear 4pots but not alot has come up and theres alot of stuff on not all 17x7 clearing 4pots on some mags depending on the angle of spokes etc,
what ive got is a set of advanti racing star 17x7 ive measured my offset which was a little hard with the tyre still on and come up with +42 now im not sure but im hoping these will clear the 4pots.
Now if they dont i dont really want to or buy new wheels. Im wondeing if they dont fit if a set of spacers will help?
anyone been down this track ? any help appreciated cheers

Don't get spacers, loathsome things. They can make warrants tricky. WRX 16's clear them, BG GTB 17's do not, BH GTB 17's do, both pre and facelift. Anything v7 and on will clear them too. TE-37's clear them, as do CE-28n's

<Shale>: Blighter doesn't really have an accelerator pedal, it's more just a loudness pedal. You can change volume, but you won't go any faster.


<mjlqtown>: (Southern US accent) I'v excised the demon! This car is now clear!


<Reuben>: I feel like when you stomp the throttle in Blighter, it's like you've startled an old man!

I'm hoping these advantis clear them not really keen to buy new rims spokes on these advantis don't have any slope on them and I think the offset should clear them here's hoping find out on Monday

Advantis, otherwise known as 'bendys' may (but not likely) clear them to begin with, but not after you hit a bumpy bit of road :P
[20:30:58] <Pelvin> what are the handbrake shoes? are they only fitted on the rear?
