Spacers

So I just picked up some wheels off a 98 cobra for my 04 new edge, it fits good and all but I wanted it to be flush with the fender or sticking out just a tad to enhancement that aggressive stance. What is the best size spacer to get?

Rear wheel specs- 275/40r17

I'm wondering the same 315s don't look right without spacers.

1" hubcentric spacer from Max Motorsports is as big as you should go. Do not get the $50 American Muscle ones, they are not hubcentric.

Alecas, you do not need spacers running 315s on 10-10.5" wide wheels or you are doing something very very wrong.

Looks fine here. That is a very wide aggressive stance. You don't want them TOO far out or you can get the fender hitting the tire.

That's as far out as you want them. That's a very wide stance.

Well 275s aren't that small, they arent 315s but they are fairly large, the pic just shadows out the tire which I hate cos it does make it look smaller than it actually is

I had 275s out back on my 98 on a 10" wide rim. Fit perfect although they were BFGs and BFGs usually run a little big. 235s up front on 8" wide rims, made for a nice staggered setup but not really great for going around corners...


Do not need some sort of omgwtf huge tire on the street. Honestly a set of 18x9s with 275s or 285s all around is optimal IMO. Run spacers out back if you want the flush look. Allows you to rotate and the car will handle much better if that is important to you.

I put on some 1/8" spacers from MM with my 315s. Looks perfect, IMO.

285s in back. Could be wider, but not buying tires any time soon and not using spacers without ARP wheel studs. Also don't want much wider in the back than the front. Would prefer a square set up.

BTW, the MM spacers that do not have the built in studs are still hubcentric.

That's about as wide as the setup on my 98 was out back (same rims out back too) but I had 235s up front and that damn thing turned like a pig lolol.

Can't imagine someone putting spacers on a 315... that'd just look dumb if the wheel sticks out past the fender IMO.

I agree with you on only using a hubcentric sandwich style spacer with ARP studs as well. Only safe way to do it. And get a MM spacer.

Let me know if you want more angles and I'll take a few more pics. This is with 315 MT street comps and 1/8" spacers from MM.

Did the 1/8' make a difference at all? I'm pretty sure what everyone sees in this pic is the 315 sticking out lol

Get a better angle where you can see it in the wheel well. Like 45 degrees off the back end of the car.
