I was going for having the wheels flush with the fenders and it came out just the right size.

I noticed that the factory studs extend past the spacer a little and your wheels look like Ford stock 18". Was there room for the factory studs on the back of your wheels so the wheels would fit flush against spacer?

Also, you got a really good deal because American Muscle is selling the H&R 1" spacers at $149 a pair, so you saved $98. Well done!

Yea my rims had holes on the back that the studs could sit in. They didn't stick out much but there was lots of room even if they did stick out more. It was almost like ford new we would put big spacers on!!!

Sweet, that's what I thought. My wheels look exactly like yours only they are the Pony Package polished aluminum 18"x8" ones. I should be good to go. Now I just gotta get the price down for 2 pairs of spacers. Thanks for the help and a very nice and affordable mod

Just double checked the link and re-linked the thread just to be sure, but it works for me.

Wheel Spacers? Pros and cons?

Try it again or you can do a search on "wheel spacers" and it will pop up. Hope this helps.

That makes a really nice difference. I have these same wheels. It makes them look like an aftermarket offset

The only thing that's kinda stoping me from doing the front wheels is this statement from the H&R installation instructions (instruction #7) on American Muscle:

"NOTE" Spacers larger than 1/4" are intended for rear wheel use only."

Here's the link.

Perhaps the stress dynamics are different for the front wheels as opposed to the back wheels. Let me know what ya think.

^^ I'm assuming the big difference would be that the front wheels turn and the backs of course don't, so the extra stress from that could be bad on the spacers. I only want to do my rear cause personally the sn95s rear wheels sit to far in.

Here's an update on whether or not to use larger than 1/4" spacers on the front wheels at this link, which basically indicates that it is not recommended.
