Wheel spacers???

Hey guys I just want all the information you guys have on wheel spacers. I'm looking to fill the gaps on my 02 gt without bigger staggered wheels because rubber isn't cheap. Would spacers work

Only 20mm? The pics are misleading. They are pretty far in

---------- Post added at 04:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:17 PM ----------

What's the difference between hub centric and regular spacers?

Hey I've been looking and I have 17x8 wheels. If I get 1.5in spacers and lower my car do you think my rear tires will rub the fenders when I corner hard?

That works if you aren't lowered... My fenders would be sitting on the tires.

I have a 04 mustang with 20inch rims. Don't like how my rims look like theyre tucked under the fender. What size adapters do I need to make it look better? people were telling me 25mm/1 inch. They also told me that it would give my mustang a mean look with it which will make it look better.

It all depends on offset and tire sizes on your wheels.

Judging by the picture you could fit 25mm no problem

I was thinking something like that because the front tires don't look far as tucked under as the rear tires.

Its not just better its the ONLY way to do it safely. The cheap AM ones are not hubcentric and you should never run them. Max Motorsports sells good bolt on hubcentric ones but honestly the best ones require new studs. Any spacer over 1/8" likely requires new studs. Rule is if you aren't getting at least 6 threads of engagement you need new studs.

The staggered look looks good on Mustangs.

I'm probably going with 25mm wheel adapters. One more question. Will it be okay if I put them in the front and back? I have 225/35/20 tires. I don't think i'll like them only in the rear.

In my experience you do NOT want the tires to come out past the fender lip if you are lowered or don't have stiff springs. One good bump and that fender could slice your tire or crunch it or you'll just be rubbing all the time etc... This is an issue with 18x9s on the front of a 94-98 car as well that I completely forgot about with my 95 and am now running into with my 98. If I had run wider tires I would be rubbing which is why I'm probably legit going to have to go to 18x8s...

My springs are pretty stiff unless I have a huge amount of weight in my car, BUT normally I don't. My car isn't lowered though and I wasn't planning on lowering it. Just wanted to get wheel spacers to make it look better. My tire size is 225/35/20.
