IRS Springplate Clearance Bolts
This hardware kit gives maximum clearance between tyre & springplate bolt on IRS equipped cars.
Hardware kit for IRS equipped cars.
When running wider tyres on IRS cars, often the sidewall of the tyre comes into contact with the front springplate mounting bolt. By using these bolts, mounted from the inside-out, an extra 6mm clearance is acheved.
This may not sound like much, but it may save having to run a narrower tyre, or sourcing wheels with a smaller offset. Using a smaller offset can lead to issues with the tyre then fouling the wheelarch, especially on Karmann Ghias.
Not for Semi-Autos or Type3s, as the forward mounting bolt is a little further out the way, and doesnt usually interfere with the tyre.
The kit contains a pair of; 10.9 stainless Allen.-headed bolts, stainless bolt washers, wavy washers & 10.9 stainless nuts.
