Re: poor mk2 not liking its new shoes....help please! (VW-BMW)
"I'm thinking maybe the adapters are too thick and the wheels are sticking too far out even though you don't think so. I'm still trying to get a visual image of what's happening here though."
You might be right, but i want to keep the wheels, have seen them fitted to mk2s before, and want to know how it can be done without rubbing. Rubbing where indicated in red:
"If you are at standard ride height, I've got to think offset is the only thing that could cause this."
I am at standard ride height, but these are the correct (the only) adapters for these wheels,a nd AFAIK, there is no way of offsetting wheels *further in* is there. I believe there would be risk of fouling the strut if they were any further in anyway. I could be wrong on all the above.
"Are the front or rear wheels rubbing?"
All I've noticed is a "schrrrrrrrrrrrrrK' noise when i go over large bumps, and looking at the car, there is paint being rubbed off in the place indicated on the picture.
Hope someone can help now I have posted extra information
