What wheels are you running? As you will be limited by choice of spacer size by what ET your current wheels are.

Go for hub centric whatever size you go for. I may have some brand new KAVS 13mm ones up for sale very soon...

Am I right in thinking to fit coilovers on S-spokes I will need spacers up front to avoid the coil adjusters?

Depends on the coilovers and the desired height, but in general: yes.

Don't mind if I jump in your thread but ...... at what size spacer should you get longer bolts? and how far can you push out S spokes before they catch on the arches?

Thanks
I've just bought 5mm spacers and gone for 5mm longer to be safe, with a 3mm shim, the standard bolts still had plenty of threads left

I put longer bolts in with my 5mm ones, some people don't bother, I would not chance it though , them 8 bolts are pretty important !

Thanks for the replies, I've got 5mm on the fronts with original bolts but ideally want to space the front & rears out more so I'll have to get longer bolts for sure but I was wandering how much to go by?

I like the sort of spacing moktabe has done on his GP!
