Im putting new tires on tomorrow, so I figure I would put spacers on as well. what combination of fronts and rears would give the car that more aggressive stance/look?

Re: Wheel spacers (frankybotz87)

I would do 10Front/15 Rear.Also I would not go more than 10mm on front.<p><br>Remember to get extended bolts and it will be pain in the rear to take the spacers off between tire rotations(Most places refuse to work on cars with spacers) and will give you their smartass lesson about dangers of spacers.

I'm having 245's installed tomorrow. I haven't had any issues with getting lectured when I'm getting service done though. If you get hubcentric spacers (they have a ring that centers on the hub) and use extended wheel bolts, there shouldn't be any safety issues.

Re: Wheel spacers (Short Circuit)

I am running 10mm front 15mm rear (EIBACH) on 235/40 GY Eagle F1 without any problem.<p>Was thinking about going to 245/40 GY Eagle F1 including spacers though I am afraid they will rub.<p>Apparently 245/40 is not the way to go on our cars.<p>There was one guy on the forum with 245/40 and 15mm spacers in the rear who warned not to do it as his tyre got completely destroyed.<p>Think I will stick to 235/40 and 10mm front 15mm back.<p>Joey <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Wheel spacers (jsalien24)

I'm running 245/40 Bridgestones on 17" Pegs with 5mm spacers all around, stock lug bolts. There is slight rubbing on the right front wheel at full lock on left-hand turns, but no other issues. They look mean.

Even 5 all around is perfectly acceptable.

Re: Wheel spacers (m3nt0s)

10 and 10 has worked out for me, as suggested by Kelly. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">
