8.5"x18" ET=40 and wheel spacers

  • Dear all,


    I'm from Italy and I own a MK4 2010 Mondy facelift version (four doors, TDCi 163 cv) with the Eibach Pro-Kit (30mm lowering) and Tomason TN1 8.5"x18" ET=40 wheels.
    Now I would want to install Eibach Pro Spacers. According to you, which is the maximum width of wheel spacers I can install without scratching between the wheels and arches?
    Probably 10 mm?
    Many thanks!

  • The fact is that respect to the original Ford wheels (8"x18" ET=55) the Tomason TN1 I fitted are 8.5"x18" ET=40, so each wheel "comes out" of about 21 mm. I would want to install Eibach Pro Spacers but without risks of scratching between the wheels and arches and without modifications of the internal parts of arches. I don’t know if 20 mm width spacers are too for my Mondy…
