    I am looking to order a set of spacers for my rear wheels. Is 1/2 the most common size? I am running a 17x9.5 rim with a 275 tire. I just want the rim to sit flush like in the front... THANKS!!!
    :)

    I know a 1in wheel spacer is perfect for 17x9 with 275s.

    I know my car is an Edger, but it will show you the difference that spacers make.

    9inch wheels, 275 nitto 555 tires

    Pics are grouped in twos...1st is without spacer, 2nd is with a 1 inch spacer.

    looks good, so the 1 1/2 would be to much huh?

    here's mine...1" spacer with a 275/40r17 on a 96GT. (not the greatest pix...will try and get some better ones tomorrow)...and yes, it needs to be lowered.

    one inch looks good, do those wheels have the same backspacing as the 95 r's?
