Nothing. No changes at all needed. No spacers, no lift.

The only slight reservation is there is a very small rub on full lock, adjusting the lock stops very slightly will cure this and on first fitting, until you've a few miles on this size, if you drop to the stops, they will rub on the arch line and leave you stranded. After maybe 1000 miles, they no longer rubbed.





I've been delighted with mine

that's cool, maybe you can avoid that rub by putting the lift kit, but is it recommended to put permanent lift kit?

I refer to http://johnsonrods.com/johnson_rods_3_004.htm
It's mentioned that your tyre size 265/65R18 needs lift kit

Just kind of sharing only

A lift kit won't stop the rub at full lock and to be honest, the arch liner rub went away within a month or so of fitting. The initial rub was after I had the tires fitted, the fitter had played around with the height controls and the car had a hissy fit about 100 yards from the tire fitters and dropped to the stops.

No big deal as was hardly moving at the time anyway and she rose straight back up when asked to
and the next time she dropped to the stops, no rubbing so it may have simply been until the moulding marks had been worn off, that's how slight the rub was.

Maybe the guys flogging Johnson Rods should read this thread.
