Wheel spacers help!

Anybody have experience with wheel spacers? They're on eBay for about $50, or American muscle for about $100. Is it worth getting the am ones? Also, is it worth the additionally 70ish bucks for hub centric spacers? I was planning on 1.5 inch, any reason to go with 1"? Thanks!

I would say you want to go with a good brand thats reliable... as if they mess up you can be in big trouble.

If your wheels are too wide to fit then yes

Re: Wheel spacers help!

If I'm adding caliper covers and need wheel spacers on the front,should I put them on the rear also?

Re: Wheel spacers help!

if your tires are still R70/235 then 1.5 spacers look great, brand who cares there all the same remember to remove clip that holds the rotor on from the factory

Re: Wheel spacers help!

seconded, it'll look real goofy if your fronts are wider than your rears
