I run 5mm slip on spacers on the front and bolt on 17mm on the rear of my tourer, that’s with oem 18” wheels (7.5” ET50) and my rays (7.5” ET48)
Front ones were cheapie eBay purchase, rears are from freaky parts

What wheel do you have?
Just standard wheels.

lots of the fk8r chaps get their knickers in a twist about "scrub radius" apparently

:)
Not just geometry changes I'm worried about, but it throws off the aero too - can detach the flow along the side of the car by moving the wheel outside the air curtain

Must agree with that thinking. Honda spent a lot of time making the FK8R the best hot hatch, the fact its still beating all comers what 3 years on is testimony to that. The only test I've seen it beaten in was the stripped out £80k Megane RS Trophy R.
