Best wheel spacers?

I have some 275/35/19 Hankooks on 19" AMRs on the rear of my new edge. I wanted to know what are the best spacers to get? I hate how they wheels are tucked in. Anyone have some pics? What are the best brands? And should I go for 1 inch or 1.5 inch? There are also 25mm and 35mm spacer but idk how those work? Thanks in advance! Click image for larger version

I know that it sucks the way that the rear wheels are tucked in, but I don't recommend using ANY brand of wheel spacers!
It actually looks like you could use a little bit wider of a tire on the rear, which will help with the appearance.

Why do you say so?

Because they can become loose and break.
I would only consider using very thin spacers, temporarily, for clearance of racing tires or similar situations.

I would only use spacers if they are the ones that slide in between the wheel and the hub on longer studs. Other ones like the ones that bolt on and then you bolt the wheel to them... no. ESPECIALLY not the non-hubcentric ones that AM/Ebay sells....


The correct way to do it is to get a better wheel/tire combo like has already been stated. But... if you must use spacers, you get a good hubcentric spacer and a set of longer ARP studs for the hubs they are going on. Press old studs out, new studs in and there you go. You need at least 6 threads of engagement and that is the BARE minimum.

Man that's a big gap on ur bumper line, were u rear ended? I was tempted to use spacers as well but all the horror stories scared me away from them... They can be quite dangerous, a proper tire and wheel setup is the way to go. Strange you have so much gap with 19's I don't have that much gap with my 17's lol and I'm on stock suspension are you
