I want to put some wheel spacers on my car. I was looking on the internet and found these: - Click Here -

They are 15mm hubcentric spacers and they look like they are legit.

However, I saw users here on the forum fitting 25mm spacers. My question is, what is the best way to go without compromising safety and tire wear.

I ride on 16" wheels.

Thanks

15-20mm would be best IMO. you start to upset things if you go out much wider. i think Wozza had 25mm on his but he had bigger wheels. I'm using 15mm and I'm happy with them.

I've got 25 mm per side (50 mm total per axle) spacers from H&R (bought at LarkSpeed.com), they are very light, and safe, since it's their 'DRA' system (you keep the standard wheel bolts to get the wheel into the spacer, and them use supplied bolts to attach the spacer into the hub).

I really enjoy the more aggressive look of the car.

I had wider wheels so essentially mine sat out 40mm further each side. So track was 80mm wider. Spacers were actually 20mm but the wheel itself was 40mm wider than standard. So it had an extra 20mm further out and closer to the suspension strut.

Has some minor rubbing on full lock. However, I was quite low as well and it was only ever getting off my drive I noticed it. Never was an issue when being put through MOT etc.

Nothing wrong with spacers if they are well thought out. No different to running another offset instead.
