Wheel spacers

What do y'all think about wheel spacers on the rear of a 2007 mustang. Do you think about $70 is worth the money for an inch of spacing on either side. Noticeably a wider stance?

Re: Wheel spacers

Oh they definitely work and you'll notice the difference. Wheel spacers are a nice alternative to wider wheels out back.

I'd recommend H&R hubcentric spacers...they are the best. Yes you do pay more but they won't crack or fail down the road like some cheaper brands might.

I believe you can buy them on American muscle and sites like that. Remember AM.com also has a forum discount for us.

I highly doubt the it's worth the price difference, the only point of failure would more likely be the studs and Im sure H&R doesn't manufacture their own studs or even the plates themselves

Re: Wheel spacers

just research the brand to see if you find any common failures with it

I agree. Who knows, check the reviews on the billet ones, they may be very durable with no problems.

Also sometimes reviews are misleading, maybe the guy with the problems over torqued them and abused them, so it's always a hit or miss

Judging by the customer photos on AM I'd say an inch

Re: Wheel spacers

I use Eibach Pro Spacers front and rear.

They are a quality product that is produced in Germany.

I use a 25mm spacer in the rear and a 20mm spacer in the front.

I have 20x10 and 20x8.5 rims on my car. The rears stick past the sheet metal approx .200-.250 thou. The fronts come out to just inside the fender lip. The car looks great IMO. No one is going to be able to tell the the rears are past the fender lip unless they are standing directly over it if that is of any worry. You could use 20mm on front and rear also.

The rears I got from AM and that's all they had. The fronts are from Amazon.com. But drop a plumb line if you want to know exactly how far you can space your rims.

What do you mean by "plumb line"?

Plumb is 90 degrees to level, horizontal. A string with a small wieght, nut , will do the job. A level also has a plumb bouble on it.

Re: Wheel spacers

What tc x 4 said....And, if your rim and tire are out past the sheetmetal...use a straight edge that touches at the bottom and top of tire and then measure the gap at top to sheetmetal.
