    hey, anybody got before and after pics for wheel spacers? too far out from the fender looks like pooh, i know...but flush w/ fender would look pretty sick. let me know
     
  2. hmm...

    deep dish FTW!

    honestly... I think that spacers make it look akward... makes the wheels look too skinny...

    mustangtuning.com has a good set @ a decent price... If I were you though, I'd slap some wider tires on as well...

    lol... sorry no pics here :hammer:

    Well what wheels do you have? I suggest 1.25" spacer if your running stock wheels.
     
  4. i'm gonna guess he has stock by looking at his avatar...

    I think more then 1 inch is too big... especially for the skinny stock wheels... which is why I say 1" + wider tires... lol... JMO

    Like mentioned 1" is perfect, best way is to measure it I know I got 1.5" spacers once and they went just slightly past the fender and it looked stupid, plus they rubbed on corners, personally I wouldnt want the tires flush with the fender but just slightly inside.

    I have 30mm spacers with 245/45/17 tires. They look perfect.

    GDawg good to see you posting over here....hows the KB install going? Make sure you post up when your done. Not alot of NPI KB's running around so your info will be helpful for future guys wanting to do the swap.
