Ok, I want to get a set of wheel spacers from MM for the rears; however, I'm not to sure which size spacer to get. I am running 17x8 chrome tribars with 245/45/17. Anyone here have the mm spacers and what size did you get??? Also any pics would be appreciated.

Also which ones are the better, the wheel spacers or the "bolt on" wheel spacers????

Thanks

I think best way is to run the tire up on blocks, and measure your gap from the tire to the fender lip.

then google "mm to in" and get a metric to inch conversion table.
kinda wierd quoting myself.

You really should measure it, or risk carving your tire in the fender.


If you dont wanna pull up a conversion chart, u can do some math.

1 millimeter = 0.0393700787 in

35mm -- 35 x .03937 = 1.38" just over 1 3/8"

and so on...

I'm looking at the 1/4 spacers. The instructions on the MM site state that I "SHOULD" be able to use my OEM wheel studs. I just want to see if anyone here has run the 1/4 with the OEM wheel studs. Anyone have pics of 17x8 with spacers??

well where do you want your wheel? flush with the inner lip of the fender (sharp part there) or sticking right to the edge? personally I dont like them right to the edge.

I'm looking to get the wheel to the inner lip. I really don't want it out to the outer edge.
