    Racestar on Wagon doesn't fit ...

    They need spacer.
    I've change my front C6Z06 for Racestar.... surprise on the drag strip 500 miles away (european championship) ... rim rubs hard on torque arm during launch ...
    Aluminium everywhere .... yes it's a weight reduction but I've been kicked out the championship :-(

    So for your information, Racestar needs spacers.

    They're fixing the issues currently. Call them and let them know and they'll put you on a list to exchange you for the right offset ones. They cut the 18x5's with a 0 offset and it should have been about a -6 offset or something of that nature. 6mm or 1/4" spacer will fix your issue. We just went through the same thing with them.
