Hi all!, i have recently purchased some Wolfrace Urban Racers ~ Eurosport Edition in Black in 17's, ONLY to find out that they RUBBED on my wheel arch! After looking into the offsets and that i find out that they are ET38 which i am told rub unless you have wheel arch modification! BUT thats not an option so i have sold those alloys and i am now about to buy a new set but does anyone know if the ET40 will be ok??? i dont wanna buy them and then they rub too! anyone with any info please reply help wub be appreciated!!! thanks J6OBO

It is recommend to be between et40-45 on 17" alloys (17x7 wheel / 205/40/17 tyres). Arch modification shouldn't be required if you stick to these offset and don't lower you corsa too much. You should be fine with going as low as -30/-40mm with not too many problems.

Any lower though like et38 will deffo need arch mods to avoid rubbing
