As mentioned by Stallion I would think you will risk catching slightly though, mine is just ok on track but another 6mm and squarer tyre I think would catch.
could this catch on the inside? ie coilover, arms etc. outside arch, or both? The arches are rolled and I was going to adjust ride height and possibly camber in to hopefully get a clean fit. Could this be enough? I really want to avoid pulling the arch

so 18x9.5 et30 te37 sagas don't fit the front. it needs a 15mm spacer and the wheel sticks out to far. fits perfect on the back with out rolling but rolling couldnt hurt anyway.

Yeh, there’s a ridge on the back of the spoke to add rigidity as the rest of the spoke is machined out! It’s catching the front brembo right by the centre of the wheel.

Get bigger front brakes and that will solve that issue

By pushing the calliper outwards it allows you to bring the wheel back in.

I have 235/45/17 AD08RS on my 5 and the rears rub the mud flaps. Should have gone 235/40 myself

The brakes need to go into the arch 10-15mm so Iím looking into a brake kit to solve this issue. Realistically the rear wheels need to sit 3mm further into the arch as well so I may consider having 2 wheels machined. Option 2 is just to sell and buy different wheels

im considering a bigger brake kit in hope that the bigger disc will move the calliper along to the flatter part of the spoke. Is this a dangerous assumption? what size kit would work? im looking at 365mm kit.

Probably costly

Have a look at AP's 362mm offering

I have just spoken to Godspeed brakes, they recommend a AP Racing 355mm kit and it was cheaper than alcons. I might go for that. If this doesnít work Iíll be selling the Rays, all this is doing my head in lol

I had a good conversation with them, I feel reassured so i have placed the order with them. If this still doesnít solve the issue I will really be scratching my head. The brakes are something I wanted to do anyway so Iíll just sell the wheels and buy something with a better fit.

I don't know how much it'll help but this is my setup....
Enkei NT03+M 9.5x18 ET27.
AP CP5575 (E46 M3 with bridge pipes flipped to change from trailing to leading).
SSB Design one off brackets.
Evo X 350mm 2 piece discs.

With no spacers I have fag paper clearance from the spokes to the caliper so I shall run 3mm spacers up front to essentially make 9.5x18 ET24.

Before I had the wheels refurbished I used to run 10mm spacers upfront, no spacers at the the rear and 245/40 R18 Dunlops. I had slight rubbing with people in the back over large bumps on standard, unrolled arches. The fronts used to rub on the arch liners on full lock but that was it.
