Size spacers on rear?
#1
Spending time looking at the car today, I want to bring the rear wheels out slightly. 

I've got 50 profile wheels and the rear end will be potentially dropped 30mm in the near future, what size spacers would bring them out slightly to make them look slightly less hidden in the arch.

Looks and handling must be in balance, you wouldn't like your woman to be a perfect specimen of fitness with no discernable tits or ass now would you.....

For someone who hasn't used spacers that's something that's just abstract.
Appreciate your attempt at being witty.


If anyone has any pictures, that may also be useful.

Ginge you have been in my old car, correct?

I have used over the time, 5-20mm spacers on the fronts and rears with various wheels. If you can tell me what wheels I had onwhen you went for a spin I can tell you what spacers I had and let you decide if it affected the handling of the car.

Also what wheels you running?

Hardly, there's a thing called a tape measure that has these "mm" measurments on it, if you put the end against your wheel you can see all the different measurements at intervals along the length of it, marvelous piece of kit! And, would you believe it, the mm on the tape measure are the same mm that they use to denote sizes on the spacers, what are the chances of that?!

Again, any pictures would be useful.

Where's the animosity coming from; this used to be a community lol

Poodle, probably took you longer to conjure that up than be useful and contribute to the request of the OP; ie, a picture.

20mm on those 16 's then when you were last in the car.

Still handled amazingly.

I think I have run 10 and 15mm spacers before.

Yeah, alright then. 

Imo 10mm or 12mm is pretty perfect for setting cyclones level with the arch, if that helps. Tyre profile doesn't make a difference to how far out the wheel sits in the arch, it's wheel offset and width you need to know.

I'm running cyclones with 20mm spacers and with too much weight they rub in the arches over bumps, I'm getting some 206 nimrods, will this be any worse or better with those? Also I'm guessing i'll probably need to roll my arches maybe?
