PHIL!!
Phil hasn't got the RS wheels, his are Oz Supertourismo GT's.

Lots of other people on here got them - you need to run 15mm spacers front and rear (maybe 20mm rear if you wish) and either cut one of the studs on each spacer short or get a different locking nut (because the studs are longer) McGard 24137's have been used I believe.

Off the top of my head, thestumper and Speedfreak are running the RS wheels

if i just use 15mm spacers will i still need to cut one fo the studs,
very confused as to why you have to cut just one stud and not them all

Not got round to fitting a set myself yet but good info on here from others who have says that the locking nuts aren't as deep inside as the standard nuts so they go tight on the end of the stud before tightening the wheel properly. So you need to shorten 1 stud per wheel by 2 or 3mm or get another type of locking nuts.
