before adaptors mate, the rears will probably be out just over an inch which is fine with a bit of stretch.
You'll need a fair amount of stretch to get it sitting low on a wheel that pokes over an inch out of the arch. You'll probably find you might want to run some araldite/hard compund resin on the underside/inside of your arches. Just a very thin layer.
This will help to stop the tyres from pulling your paint off if they scrub at all (which they most probably will).
Mine scrubbed so often that some of the paint was flaking away on the underside of the arch.

Also, get your fronts rolled asap.
You'll need it R2D2 aka MK4 Gt Td - Page 4 51732

inerlinings will be coming out as soon as they start to rub. i was thinking about flaring the rears but then il have to make my bumper match and thats effort R2D2 aka MK4 Gt Td - Page 4 651561

right i really didnt think these wheels would be ready for UD, but i just got a invoiced for vat from parcel force which means the adaptors are here! AWESOME!

does anyone know if Cambridge Profomance tyres can fit up tyres to the barrel when they have no faces on them or do they need faces?

also does anyone have a small (1/4 or 1/2) torque wrench that i can borrow to make up the wheels? if so give me a pm and il send you my number.

all hands on deck! wooo!

bad news. i need 4 special valves (of which i have two) before they can fit the wheels up. even worse news, i cant find any information on the company who makes the wheels. anyone ever heard of a company called Merab?

A quick google and it looks like they are generally listed as truck and bus type valve, can get them at different angles and so on.
