Thinkin of spacers..

Hey guys,
I wanna move my wheels out a bit to flush them up with the fenders. I have 295s on the rear on the stock SS wheels. How big of a space am I looking at? I saw some people recommending 1" but idk, that seems aggressive lol. Any thoughts or pics of spacers being used with the stock 20s?

-Adam

Zero probs with tire wear and again imho car handles a bit better due to the wider track...

I have the 30mm DRM's since it is NOT a spacer but rather a hub extender with new studs....WAYYYY better than any spacer even with the hub centric and extended studs...

good luck OP...be safe....

Oh no, I agree. I may have worded the post incorrectly. im definitely doing the extenders, not just a flat metal spacer like pepboys sells. See link below, im thinking of buying them. Im just unsure about 1". I still have stock SS wheels at the moment

I'm running 23mm front and 20mm rear since I got the car in 2015. Picture may not show it but the rear tire is just inside the fender. No issues at all with performance.

I have a pair (2) of eibach 3/4"(20mm) that I don't need if that would help you. Made in Germany. They were posted in classified section. Reasonable price accepted.

Howdy,

I have (2) Pair, (4) total of the Eibach 15mm spacers. They are brand new, never installed. They are made in Germany by H&R, TUV approved and the best in my opinion. By going with a 15mm, you do not have to worry about rubbing with wider tires/lowered suspension. Also, they give you more clearance with different wheel sizes in case you change wheels. I would sell them for 265.00 shipped. Can ship immediately. I can text or email pictures.
