Post #1
In a few weeks I’m going to respray my Cyclones, my 6 is Diablo red and I’m thinking of painting the wheels dark grey metallic, any opinions on what they’d look like?
Secondly, wheel spacers, I see they’ve been done to death on here but I’ve no experience with them so I want to get them right....
Are 20mm on the rear ok with a std suspension setup?
Will they alter the handling?
Which ones should I buy?
Will I need longer wheel bolts?
Thanks in advance gents!

out of interest why do you want to use 20mm spacers on the back with cyclones?

As a few others have alluded to, the rear wheels look like they’re further under the arches than the front wheels.

You'll find 20s pushing the wheels close to the outer arch on hard cornering

10s or 15 max should sort the look without playing with things to much
Longer bolts =yes
Type Ali hubcentric 4stud 108 spacing
Will change you handling yes but not much certainly less than good tyres compared to s**te etc

I think that one was Vauxhall Graphite Grey ( long time ago ), The car is in getting resprayed and I'm having another set done in graphite grey for it, so I'll post a pic up for you next week when I get it back.

That’ll be great, silly question...what do you do about wheel studs whereas the colour is concerned, are yours still steel/chrome?

left as is, may be not but my guess as soon as you put a socket on painted ones they'd be fubbered anyway.

Yeah that’s true, well I need new studs anyway so at least they’ll look nice albeit a different colour Thumbs up
