    Take a piece of string to the tire and measure how far out your want the tires to be. Then buy spacer of that size.

    Rule of thumb is less than 255 width tire go 1.5", 265-275 go with 1.25" and 1" with 285-295 and have a little poke. This is in most cases if ur running typical "mustang" wheels.

    Unless you have no plans on changing the wheels, spacers would be a waste of $ since you'd probably get ones with different offset and would need new spacers or no spacers at all.

    This is just my opinion though since I'm cheap ;)

    Might want to check and see if you can even use spacers. I couldn't on my stock wheels. They didn't have openings where the studs come through.
