How many of you are using these and what sizes are you using? I am wondering which would be best for my car with my stock 96 17" wheels. I was thinking 1" spacers on the rear would be fine.

I have 1.25 on just the back, and couldnt be happier, brings them out just enough, so Im not tucking the rear wheels anymore.

i have 1" spacers on the back of my car, with stock 17" X 8" rims. MAJOR improvement in look, but they could be a smidge further out. O well, they are just temporary anyway till i can afford wider rims and tires.

I have 30mm H&Rs... They are just a tad wider than 1" and are perfect.

Hey guys I have 03 cobra wheels on my sn95 and a .5 inch spacer just to get the tire right at the edge of the fender it looks like the front stick out more than the rear but my question is when I put my spacers on I could only get 3 maybe 4 threads in my lugs so where can I get longer lugs I tried my local auto part store and they said they cant find anything in there book that will fit the car I say B/S. Any help

www.maximummotorsports.com they have moroso ones and some others that sound to be good enough and are cheaper. I have the exact same problem and I plan to do this when I start workin full time again. be sure to get pics, let me know if u have any questions.

Just ensure they are hubcenteric with bolts. They should fit with no problem, although I did run aftermarket wheels.

I ran 30mm H&Rs also on the 98 for 7 years with no issues.

If you guys are gonna run those..better make sure you have enough thread on when you race. I run a 1 inch bear spacer with my skinnies..it was not safe at all. I have changed all my studs to 3 inch studs, for racing and safety. If you don't like th elook of exposed studs, Mach I lug niuts are longer and fit perfectly over them. Just a heads up!
