What would look better?

I am maybe going to get wheel spacers just wondering will the billet aluminum spacers on an be good or do they suck!? Also what would look better a 1 in spacer or 1.5. I'm lowered on h&r ss and have 17x8 stock bullits with a 275?

So only go with the hubcentrics? And did they sit flush with the wheel well or stick out a little?

I dont like wheel spacers, ive heard of horror stories having those on your car. Plus most drag strips dont allow you to run them on your car.

a wider wheel is really the only good way to flush out the rear so i agree

Pretty sweet. I'm just thinking that they will look really skinny still. But maybe better than looking like bow legged lol.

Yeah I love the look from the side on my car cause they look really good and have the staggered look from the spacers but soon as I get behind it, it's look retarded IMO cause my tires are so skinny with those 17x8 wheel. That's why I want new wheels/tires. The only reason why I don't take them off cause of the side view I got. I hate that they're so tucked up behind the fender when I don't have the spacers on them.

Just paid 450 for both at Discount Tire.

I was expecting a little more radial than drag, my mistake. Lol

What like 250?
