Wheel spacers?

Hi im thinking about picking up some hubcentric wheel spacers. Anybody have them? Are they worth the money? Thanks.

For 1994-2004 mustangs, the front axle is 1 inch wider on each side than the rear axle. Check it out yourself, its obvious looking at the wheels. The rear wheels are tucked in the fender while the front are popping out a bit. I have 275s on my 04 v6 and the rear is still tucked too much for my liking. I will be investing in 1 inch spacers soon, then ill finally get that mean stance every sn95 deserves, you should do the same

Yea i lm running 315's on the rear and its still tucked as well. they also rub a little when i go over dips/ curbs because i didnt do the quad shock flip. Would wheel spacers help them not rub as much since the wheels are out farther? Or do i just need to do the quad shock flip?

Just do the quad shock flip, no need for spacers. 315s on a 10 or 10.5" rear rim should be about flush with the fender.

Also have to keep in mind that different years have different width rear axles and fender flares etc... 99-04 cars have 1" wider rear axles than the 94-98 cars, the 99-04 cars also have the built in flares so running a little wider up front does not lip out past the fender and look bleh. There are export fender flares for the 94-98 guys if you can find them but they are a bit of a trick to hunt down.

335s on the rear of a 99-04 are perfect. If you want to do custom flares on the rear end 345+ is possible.

My car is a 94 and im really just looking for a more aggressive stance than i have. I was wondering if spacers worth buying and also if it could help my rubbing problem. But im gonna look into doing the shock flip now.

A more aggressive stance is going to come from wider wheels. And by the looks of that picture you won't have any rubbing issues at all, now lowered enough.

Would flipping the quad shocks allow me to lower it without any rubbing?

Just take them out. Unless you do any real performance driving they won't matter.

Yeeesh that needs to be lower. Spacers are not needed your wheel is already in a good spot. Just flip the quads and that should cure the rubbing issue. Then springs and shocks and cc plates and some list control arms.
