lenso wheel spacing issues

Post by james butler » Fri Oct 30, 2015 9:12 pm

hi all,
i have lenso wheel fitted on my car and had to have 5mm wheel spacers on the front to get the wheel to fit over the calipers when they were first fitted.
i recently took the wheels off and refitted them but im finding the wheel is catching on the caliper even with the spacer in place and cant understand how im going wrong?
do i need to fit a bigger spacer or is there a way of spacing the caliper carrier back into the hub assembly?

Are all 4 wheels the same offset?

Did you do anything to the brakes at all? Maybe changing the position of the outer opposed part of the caliper.


Apparently the dreadful paint on my Rocco is PATINA....

Your bang on duggers.
When I changed the springs the other day I took the calipers and brake pads off to get the suspension leg out without separating from the hub, however when I put the pads back in it must be catching the lip on the edge of the disk.
I jacked the car up today and spun the wheels and I can feel it rubbing pad on disk.
I will take it all apart and clean it up.
Thanks for the help peeps.
Might use this as an excuse for some new disks n pads!
