that was my plan also and he was like i got these spacers with them if you want them you can have them...so i figured it would be easier...i dont really like how they stick out but its less destructive this way and knowing me i would take to much off and my calipers would fall off or something at the end of the track and be screwed

I had 1 inchers on the front at one time, so you will be fine with small ones.

i was dissapointed when i found out that my telstars wouldn't clear my GT's brakes without spacers, now they stick out like craazy and i have massive negative camber.

i know with my 3.5" wheel and 165's i can look at it from the front and the wheels sit just slightly past the fender line kinda looks goofy and i hate that its a 4x4 stance because i can see into the massivly huge wheelwell with nothing in there haha

On the front, I run a 5/16th spacer and did alittle griding on the cross bar and they fit great and sit just inside the fender. As far as the rear, I have 275/60/15 Nitto's and they measure 28" and my car is lowered about 2" and they fit with very little work. They are on a 10" wheel and tire width is about 10.5".
