Wheel spacers

Question: do you guys recommend wheel spacers? If so why or why not? And if you do what size and what brand is the best to buy? Also post some pics if you have some installed!

Hubcentric wheel spacers to get wheel out closer to wheel well.

I hear a lot about wheels falling off, whether it be over time or in a couple months...is there a way to prevent this?

Eibach makes sets of hubcentric wheel spacers. I would trust them.No wheels will fall off if installed as directed.
You can check reviews and opinions out on the web.

Yah H&R or Eibach, nothing else. Those are the best hubcentric offerings out there for our cars.

What size wheel are you trying to push out? Are you wanting a "wider" look or are you wanting to push the rears flush to the fender?

I still have my stock 16inch chrome ponies on right now so I just wanted to push it out to the wheel well because you know they look horrible tucked in under the fender. Then in about a month or so when I get my 17inch saleens I wanted to just reuse the spacers if that's recommended

The stock 16" wheels are 7.75" wide, most aftermarket saleens are 9-10" wide.

If you run 9" in the rear you could possibly re-use the spacers if you don't go too wide with them. Honestly, I'd hold off on the spacers if you're going to get different wheels in a month.

Take the money you would spend on spacers and put it towards some 17x10.5 or 18x10 rears..you won't have to the "tucked in" look anymore.
