Wheel Spacers

First off, I know wheel spacers are always a risk to put on but I will be lowering my car soon as I've purchased some lowering springs already. I'd really like to have my tires flush perfectly with the fender and not be too far out but not tucked in. Im running 245/45/17 in the rear right now but im planning on going wider with 275/40/17 in the rear. I want to know what the best size spacers are to buy for the the perfect flush with my setup. I also have bullitt style wheels. Appreciate the feedback!

Don't run them and just get wider rear tires...he is running 245's on the back. I ran 275's and loved them with no spacers.

what are you running now? I'm leaning towards getting wider tires right now after reading some things on other forums. How will the 275s look? will they still be tucked in?

I'm going to be installing 1" hub-centric wheel spacers on my car this weeked front & rear along with FRPP - P lowering springs I like the factory wheels I have on the car now but with the stock 50mm off-set they are tucked in way to much and I can't see spending the money on aftermarket wheels and tires it would cost me 2K for new wheels and tires VS $150 for 2 sets of 1" wheel spacers most of the aftermarket wheels I have looked at in an 18x8 or 9 have a 30mm offset for the S197 a 1" spacer is 25mm so by installing a 1" spacer my wheel off-set would be 25mm and should put my stock wheels close to flush for a fraction of the cost of new wheels and tires works for me

Would AM sell them if they were really that bad?? Just read the reviews and ck the pics out. Lots of ppl have them and like anything else you just need too maintain them, don't get lazy. There are worst things you can do to your stang.

Btw I don't recommend spacers for the front. I don't believe they were meant for the front, just rear.
