S.A.M. sells wheels spacers that will move the wheel 15mm out. Lookinig at the car it seems to me that the rear wheels are tucked in farther then the fronts. Do you think that a rear spacer would bring the rear wheels in line with the fronts or would you do spacers all the way around? FYI you must also buy longer wheel bolts

Wheel spacers are typically used when attempting to mount a wheel with the <B>wrong</B> offset for your car. Longer wheel bolts are usually required.

I'd be a little careful about fitting wheel spacers on your car. I once fitted them to my car and at relatively high speeds, the steering wheel used to vibrate and it was solely due to the spacers.

Thanks for the input. I have decided against using them. Given the racing heritage of S.A.M. I'm sure structurally their fine. But I don't want the added hassle. And besides for me it was purely for aesthetics and I'm now used to the way the car looks (with the back wheels slighlty tucked in).
