From the DEPARTMENT FOR TRANSPORT, ENERGY & INFRASTRUCTURE pdf it states the below:
Soarer Jan 91: F 1591mm R 1581mm
From what I have been reading, the only thing that really changes the wheeltrack of a car is the offset of rims fitted.
I have the following sizes fitted:
Front: 18*8.5 +30 Rear: 18*9.5 +38
Wheeltrack is measured from the centreline of the rim on one side of the car to the centreline of the rim on the other side and my tyres have a line painted down the centre of each tyre showing where the centreline is. I have measured the distance between the centreline of both rims and have the following distances:
Rear: 1520mm Front: 1530mm
If I am not mistaken current RTA laws state that you can have +-25mm from the factory wheeltrack specs and still be legal...my setup seems to fit within these permitted specs of the wheeltrack taking the factory settings to be 1521mm/1520mm...but what is the other measurement of 1591mm/1581mm referring to?
Perhaps the 1521/1520mm specs are the standard default and the 1591/1581mm are the maximum wheeltrack specs?
Is anyone else with a stock soarer and rims able to measure what the factory centreline is for +50 offset rims, this may help everyone get an exact understanding of what the factory wheeltrack is.
