    Wheel spacers, who's using them?

    I'm thinking that I'll just keep my wheels but add some spacers. Stock 7 inch wheel and the offset is +45, I'm thinking of running 15-25mm spacer bringing my offset to +30-20.

    Noww my question is will the spacers interfere with suspension settings? Also what recommendations do you guys have for tire size. What is the best or widest sizzled tire for a 7 inch rim? 235-225 x 45/17.

    Also let me know if any are for sale.

    Any help is appreciated.

    When I had stock rims (17x7" +4?) I rocked a 25mm spacer and loved it. If I had to do it again though I'd look for a plus 20mm cause it was a little wide if I wanted to go lower.
    Available now are SPAZ APPROVED decals!!! Available in multiple colors!

    When I run my OEM Si wheels for my winter setup, I run 10mm spacers all around and it looks awesome lowered on coils and wouldn't rub at all. Now, i'm running 17x9 +42 grids with 245/40 tires, 5mm spacers in the rear. I'm rolled all around and I'm rubbing on hard turns and some bumps on the bumper/quarter panel screw in the wheel well. All depends on your wheel specs.

    And 06_typeS don't run two spacers. Just like condoms - Just run one with the right specs You can get em cheap on ebay (spacers).
