Re: big wheels

is the wide arch kit replacing the gaurds with wider ones or just stickin on extra pieces to look wider? i've seen both. if your replacing gaurds (ie with RS guards) then that will probably help quite a bit as it would probably stop the rubbing, depending of course on how low your going. i still recommend you talk to the guys on focusfanatics.com in their tyres and rims section. they'd be better equiped to give you accurate advice.

this is Marcus from In Focus Motorsport...

Our car has 19's and they fit under the standard archs with no arch mods. Anything over 7.5" wide and you will start to get problems though...
