i have done a st170 rear brake converstion on the rear whick makes your rear wheel stick out by 15mm ish.so i cut the iner arch back and it was fine for my 17inch wheels but today i put on some escort cosworth wheels and they stick out more.the tyres are stretchd as well.

 

my question to any one is

 

do i need to fit bump stops?

what elc can i do to make them fit with out rubbing?

 

its for a escort gti.

 

cheers

yeah indeed but you can't shave too much off they are standard et25 and in order to achieve escort offset you will need to shave off about 15mm at least and thats alot of metal! so i would only shave off so much to the point where its safe either that or try and do the same technique to the hub or beam
