The spokes of the 15x7 +28 CE28Ns are very close to the calipers. Has any of the owners running the 15x7 CE28Ns noticed any rubbing of the calipers by the wheels? Or is this not a problem?
Thanks for the feedback! "Very close" is whatever the clearance is between the stock caliper and the CE28Ns. Apologies for not getting numbers, but from a visual inspection they do look close.What do you consider to be "very close"?
Now that rang a bell. I just went out to the garage and checked... I'm using 3mm spacers on the front wheels... but to be honest I don't remember whether that was for caliper spacing or tire clearance. I use 5mm spacers on the rear purely for tire clearance, not caliper clearance. Sorry for the confusion.Thanks for the feedback!

The reason I ask is Eric from Suspension Performance told me that the caliper to spoke clearance is below spec and suggested 2mm spacers for additional clearance to prevent contact from deflection. I've not had an issue with contact between the wheels and the calipers, but I decided to see if there is any recorded instance of contact in the community since I haven't had a lot of track miles in my Lotus.
