Wheel spacers

Are wheel spacers in the rear a good idea or no?

Yea why not? That's what they make them for..but if you are lowered enough you may have a rubbing issue. You most likely will not, a lot of people use them.

If you are worried, spend the cash and get hubcentric spacers. American Muscle has them I believe.

The track I go to will not let you run if you have cheap universal spacers. For DD use, I'd say fine. If your taking your baby to the track, spend the extra cash.

Is it safe to do burnouts or powerslides and stuff like that with spacers on? No track though

Get the eibach ones if you're going to try and test them.. Make sure everything is tight I think it's like 70-80 lbs for our lugs. Are you planning on getting 1/4" or like 1" plus?

Don't cheap out on a set..get eibach you'll be fine...and put anti seize between spacer and rotor so they can come off. I'm sure they are tested and can withstand quite a bit, but wouldn't hurt to check them out every so often.

If you go with a hub centric type spacer like the Eibach ones mentioned, you will be able to do slides and burn outs without worry. Not to say you "won't ever" break something doing these things. If you play hard, things break.

I have spacers on my rear and I've never had an issue. As far as brand goes, I wouldn't be able to tell you since they came on the 'Stang when I bought it over a year ago.

My car is a daily driver and I do tend to speed and brake hard at times to avoid running red lights, still.. no problems with the spacers!
