was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how i can stop my wheels rubbing on the inside arch. Iv got rs2000 alloys on bog standard shocks. I was rubbing badly but iv put some 10mm spacers on which has stopped it alot, but theres still abit of rubbing occuring on full lock

You need 5mm spacers on the front, maybe you've spaced them a bit too much which has caused rubbing on another part.

Good choice on alloy though ;)

Get different tyres
Don't use full lock
Get some clips to stop you using full lock

are you using 195/50r15's or 195/45r15's? also have your tracking checked? or check your shocks, if one is weeping fluid it will be lower causing the tyre to rub on full lock, i'm using 45 profile tyres on the same wheel with 3mm spacers and it only just rubs agaist the wheel arch liner on full lock
