Hi guys, I'm not too mechanical and want to minimise question-hassle to my mechanics
I've got an R53 with everything stock wheel/suspension-wise. I'd like to get smaller wheels (probably 16" - maybe 15") with chunkier (non-runflat) tyres. I want the car to be lowered as far as tyres allow and...
Yes I am a complete noob when it comes to fitting wheels as I have not ventured into this world before
Basically will 17" x 7.5J ET40 with 15mm spacers fit comfortably on my R53?
I'm hoping to get a bit of a wider look but as of yet I'm not planning to lower her... Yet
Hopefully getting some AP's at the beginning of the week and just would like to know whether I'm going to need spacers on the front?
Want to get the spacers ordered so I can use the coilovers asap. Currently on Team Dynamic 1.2's which are ET45 and 7J.
Thanks and sorry for another nooby AP...

For all those of you who spend time and money for your N/A R50, i have good news.
The stock R50 injectors are very small, at 178cc/[email protected] bar (Bosch part number 0280155991). Anything more than a full exhaust system and intake, like a camshaft, will take them to 100% duty cycle at high rpm if...
