    Default Suspension/Tire rwc question


    TO REMOVE ADS, PLEASE
    REGISTER OR SIGN IN
    Morning Folks, I have recently acquired my new ke70 and I am trying to obtain a rwc. I have a few questions, will I pass a rwc if I have cut springs ( once the lowest part of the car clears 100mm )?? Also I have 8inch wide wheels and looking to stretch 175 tires on, is there any law against stretched tires? I know I will have to roll my arches so that the wheel does not protrude past. Any help greatly appreciated. Car is located in Victoria. Thanks guys.

    I have heard VIC is pretty strict on RWC now, most places probably won't rw cut springs and stretched tyres on wide wheels, yes there is a law against stretching tyres its the thing on the side of your 175 wide tyre that says std rim 5" or something not 8.

    yes to what jakel said. also guidelines say you cant increase width of rim by XX and im pretty sure 8" is alot wider then the stock ke70 rims.
    best to use stock stuff to get past roady then fit your stuff afterwards

    Cheers for the offer mate. Might give you a shout if I need anything. You hardly have an arch roller I could get the lens of? Or know of anyone with one? Thanks again mate.
