not without 10mm spacers mate

best thing to do is look for some 16" ougrans(sp) off a 406.same style as the nimrods but come in et18 which is perfect for the 6 Thumbs up

They are, i had them on my black one, yep spacers needed.....they were a pain in the ass having to line them up every time the wheels came off.....

I thought they were Nimrods too when i had them.....Nice wheels though, i've got an image in the gallery under Musclebeach mate Thumbs up

Exactly! LOL haha
They're quite hard to come by. It took me quite some time to find a set. They were only available on "S" models of the 406 from '04 onwards if I remember correctly. Earlier models had them, but they were always 15" until '04.

Can some one please help me with this i'm getting confused i've read on here some where you need spacers to run nimrods my confussion is i read at least 10mm on the back is this so but surely they need spacers allround? So i have nimrods approx at least -40mm drop prob more currantly with 205/45's would 195/45's be better? Many thanks for your advice jimmy

205 45 you need, 10mm spacers all round required on the ET28 versions, but the front will fit without dependent on sidewall chunkiness, I'd fit spacers to be on the safe side and push the wheels out in the arch a little.

TBH though, though they look nice they do weigh a LOT, so I'd be having second thoughts having experienced a car with very light wheels and a very minimal drop on good suspension.

does anyone know where i can get some hub centric spacers from i've looked on ebay and theres a set of 4 for a 100 is that about right? And they all seem to come with tapered bolts? And what about locking nuts?

that i know what im asking is apart from ebay can anyone point me in the right direction for what i need? If i get 4 hubcentric spacer's 12 extended wheel bolts and 4 locking bolts for 100 is that reasonable?

is your's lowered an how much by? Do you have spacers on the front? Have you removed the arch liners in the back? I take it your running 195/45 allround? Sorry for all the questions lol i just want to do this as cheap as poss lol also are using the standard bolts?
