As above what are members solutions for the above when the recess on the inner side of the wheel isn't quite large enough? Removing a small amount of the alloy has been suggested which I can do but I would really prefer to keep the wheels in standard condition. I suppose that the wheel bolts will keep the disc etc located but I'd rather that these were securely located if I have the wheel off.

I used Cap head bolts with Snor serrated lock washers no wider than the bolt head and that fitted in the wheel recess. When I use spacers I have countersunk fixing bolts so there is no bolt on the surface to interfere with the wheel. BTW I also have rolled arches at the rear.

PS the factory track is wider at the front than the rear for performance reasons. They made it less for the later cars.

I hope this helps.

Thanks, I'm not sure that a cap head will give enough clearance on the Ronal wheels that I have (I had a look earlier) I should clarify that when I say spacer I mean the standard 5mm ones that go on the front.
