    Just thought id chime in here.... 18 x 9.5 et 40 squared , with 5mm spacer up front. 255/35/18s all around

    I dont rub up front AT ALL. as long as your running et 35 or lower, you wont rub the struts with an 18 x 9.5...

    You need to be more concerned with rubbing your front fenders pushing out 10mm more than i am. but you should easily clear that with a 225. you might not be able to go as low as youd like though. i say go for it!!! just take the time to make them fit right.

    Ok I got majorly distracted by SkrApUNB's pics. I do have a question. So, far I'm really impressed with ECS's products, and a few people in this thread have recommended their spacers. I'm thinking I need a 25mm on the rear, and maybe a 10, 12.5 or 15mm up front. (My set up is 18x8 et 47, square)

    These are the spacers I'm used to seeing, a #mm spacer w/ normal lugs just #mm longer that stock.


    Do these work just as well? They are the only 25mm spacer ECS has. These are H&R brand and to install: spacers bolt to the hub and the wheels bolt to the spacers using your stock lug bolts.

    I don't think I would want my wheels bolted to the spacers. I have 15's from ecs sitting in my garage...with lugs....hehe.

    That's what I'm thinking. But on the other hand, isn't H&R reputable? Those spacers are supposed to be for "racing". Would they put out a product that would fail?

    Interested in selling the 15mm spacers? I'm not sure if they'd fit though. I'm lowered about 1.5" on the Eibach pro-kit springs. But the tires are stretched a little (225's). Thoughts?

    Edit: This is the best pic I've got.

    I have 5mm spacers from Macht Schnell, no vibrations, not failure. nothing. Spacers are safe if installed correctly. Personally i thin H&R is a decent Brand, however i dont think id want my wheels bolted to the spacers alone. id rather have an EXT lug. look into the Macht Schnell Spacers... i was recommended them and i have not had an issue with them at all. heres a link for you Ryan http://www.europeanautosource.com/in...ath=67_315_326 no 25mm but they do have a 20mm
