    Hi, I ve read some on the spacers, pros and cons but want to bring my rear wheels out.

    I measured and I have 2" top tire to top outside wheel-well.

    I have 1 1/2" from outer tire to make it even with the wheel-well.

    I was looking at 2" spacers to bring them just outside the wheel-well.

    Does anyone see any issues with this? Just curious on opinions.

    Thanks
    Steve

    Buy the right offset wheels and spacers won't be needed..

    Spacers are awesome and have no cons. They are the stance community's #1 friend.

    As long as you measured correctly and want them outside the wheel well, 2" will be fine.

    Good luck finding "mustang" wheels with flush offsets without spending big $$

    I have them and never had a problem, just don't go over bumps insanely fast if you are bringing them out past the fender

    Slam your car then tell me if theyre flush.. LOL. The lower you go the more you can tell how sucks in your tires are.
