Search isnt working well, so can you tell me where to get a set of 4 wheel spacers for my R. I used Svenske last time and got 5mm spacers. I think this time I may go with 10mm spacers. This will be for stock Peg's. I just want to push to wheels out some for a more agressive look. Especially the rear. So what sizes have you guys been using and who are you purchasing from.<br>Thanks.

5mm up fron 15mm in the back. If you have the pegs on your car, those #'s will put the tires right out to the fender lip on the car. IMO it looks the best. Car looks much tougher with a wider stance.

If you do with aftermarket wheels with more offset (I have the Evolve H5's on mine) do not do the 10mm spacers in the back! They will rub. I had to take them off and put 5mm's on the back which work fine.

Greetings BLF, wondering if you can help? I'm running 17" Pegs on my '04 V70 R. Just noticed that my second set of tires are worn on the inside edge / sidewall of all tires which have been rotated. This ware must come from ocasional full lock turns that cause the only rubbing that I am aware of... (tire hitting on the steering block?). I thought there was a post on this forum about this... Will spacers fix this problem? <br>Thanks

5's up front 15's in the back. No rub at all. If I had the car lowered it would rub. I like the wider look. And that was with the Evolve H5's
