    Just fitted drop plates, what size wheels to fill arch gap slightly?

    As above, I just fitted drop plates but am not to happy with the arch gap.
    What are you guys using in regards to wheels to fill the gap slightly?
    I was thinking 15s but not sure.
    In hind sight I should of axle flipped, but I plan on air riding it in the future so thought drop plates would do for now.

    Cheers

    Just thrown a set of 14inch steelies on it for now. I do have access to a set of banded 15 inch BBS, but they stuck out a bit too much for my liking. Not sure of the offset etc, will check next time I am down.

    Banded 15" BBS? You sure? Regardless of what they are though personally I think 15" look the best and are most practical for a good suspension set up and ground clearance

    depends how wide the wheels are, anything over 7j you're going to start to find it a squeeze getting them to fit right on the front, regardless of ET. IIRC 15" ET33 7J fits just right, any lower offset they will start to poke out too much and you will hit the arches. any higher on the ET and you will get your wheel hitting the strut.
