Calibre Dub

15″ Calibre Dubs ready to be wrapped in lovely Yokohama rubber

After an exhaustive search, I’ve finally found a set of wheels that’ll suit the Caddy down to a Tee.

I’ve picked up a set of Dubs from Calibre, they’re gloss black with a stainless lip.  Sized at 15×7.5 these will sit nicely under the caddy’s arches.  I needed some spacers too in order to clear the Tarox kit, so I got hold of a set of hub centric spacers from Sixonetwo.

TPI Hub centric Spacers

Aluminium/Magnesium hub centric spacers from Sixonetwo

I used 18mm spacers up-front which was just enough to clear the Tarox calipers, and 25mm spacers at the rear to bring them slightly wider than the fronts.  Now I will have to modify the arches as the tyres poke out and I won’t be able to go as low as I want.

Wider Track

Wider Track at the rear, but now needs to sit lower
