Does anybody else suffer from this or have my spacers been fitted incorrectly? I'm confused as I'm running OEM 8.5 19s yet I see others running 20s which I imagine would cause a similar problem but this is becoming unbearable! I now have the turning circle of a lorry :-/
You shouldn't be having any issue. I have the ZCP wheels (9" width) and am running a 12mm spacer. No issues at all, although the clearance at full lock is only about 5-6mm.
