    Wheel Setup for NCT

    Have my NCT coming up soon but I need to do an alignment and I was thinking of changing things up this time around. Since I have an unusual wheel setup, I was thinking about going -1,7 on the front and -1,5 on the rear like in the picture below.

    That would allow me to lower the rear on my car just a little more and avoid me hitting my arch. I think anyway. It’s worth a try and it’s nice to be different.

    Would I get away with that at NCT or should I wait until after the test to play around? This black blob is a friends car and it passes the extremely strict German TUV test.

    I don't see an issue with NCT once tracking straight, they don't do brake test on 4wd on the rollers but if they do drive over rollers they might hit something if very low

    I won’t even go as far as those numbers. My car isn’t low and there’s no splitter fitter fitted at the moment so speed bumps aren’t an issue so I may chance it.

    Indeed, I think if I adjust it just a little I should be alright. After I took the Enkei’s off, it was clear that I needed to play a bit more on the front.

    Edit: I want to avoid rolling arches to not ruin my car

    Just asked my cousin who works in Nct and he said how they do it is they put a straight edge again your wheels and if they protrude the wheel arch in any way even a mm out past it it’s an automatic fail as they are classed as unsafe
    scoobys are my riligeon.
    a crossroad is my church.

    Have them but have no tyres for them. Suppose I could get some second hand ones that would pass. NCT is such a money racket.
