Wheel Spacers

Hi, I have a 2004 Mustang V6 with 2006 Mustang gt bullit rims on it and the are sunk in deeper than the stock rims that were on it. I was wondering if anyone knew what a good wheel spacer size is and where to get it from. I'm afraid to get a 1'' one thinking it may be to big i was thinkin 12mm but wanted some other input because i am doing this cause it rubs in the front and i wanna lower the car too.
Thanks

Re: Wheel Spacers

the only ones ive seen are the ones maximum motorsports or american muscle sells. You are right they need to be pushed back out a bit to make them look right.

1.5 inch spacers on the rear of mine with a ~2" drop sliced my rear tires. Threw the spacers in the trash after that. Ended up get wider wheels, looks better, and no more cutting tires on the fender.

And don't stick anything bigger than 1/2" at absolute max on the front. Your just going to add a bunch of strain on the front end.

Does it need to do alignment after you put wheel spacer (front and 4 rear) ?

Re: Wheel Spacers

Thanks for the input guys! Thats what i was worried about is slicing the tires. I was thinking 1in in back and 1/2 in front but i cant find any half inch wheel spacers if anyone can help that would be great!

Anywhere between 25mm and 35mm are the most commonly used sizes for rear fitment with stock 8 inch rims.

My pleasure, let me know what you go with, Ive been looking into a pair for myself. I know American muscle has them for $150(25mm) and $200(35mm) a pair plus free shipping, and if you have 50+ posts you can get another 6% off with the forum discount.
