yeah they would mate, the escort cosworth wheels are a et20 and they stick out a lot, a 15 will stick out 5mm more.

the xr2i ones i think are a et35 but im not 100% sure on that

My XR2I rims are et 30, got some alloys which are et 35 and theyre going to sit too close to anti roll bar link arm on the shock absorber,any one else had this?? imguessing a 5mm spacer will ease the gap enough to be safe?

thanks

What's the offset of the rims, what size tyre do you have, is it lowered if so how much, do you have spacers already?

If its rubbing the front inner arch on full lock that happens with lots of 15 inch wheels and spacers won't stop that
