I currently have my car lowered on eibach springs. I'm thinking about adding 15mm front and 20 mm rear eibach spacers. I'm running 20" style 32 wheels 20x9 & 20x10. 245/45/20 front & 275/40/20 rear tires. Will the spacer setup work without any issues? I do not want to roll my fenders. Can anyone give me confirmation on this set up? I've done alot of research and get mixed answers on the forum. Any input would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

You will be fine. I ran 20mm spacers front and back when I used to have 20"wheels and was dropped on H&Rs.

Here's some pictures. Before the drop I didn't need spacers as much as I did after the drop. There is a link on here somewhere on how to measure exactly what size spacers you need. I'll try and find it and message it to you. I would have loved to run 25mm in the front and 30mm in the back. Make sure to also buy the longer lugnuts as well.

So my tires which are 45 front and 40 rear wont hit the fender? Your tires look really low profile.

Thank you. I used to be lowered on H&R springs now that I have 22" wheels I went with kw coilovers

Thank you bro! Those wheels are MRR Wheels HR6 model. I think besides the OEM 20" wheels these are the best option to have on a big body car like ours. If you look in my pictures I have had them for a while before I bought TXstyle wheels about a year ago.

What are the specs on the tires. They look really low profile. Are they 40 front and 35 rear?

255/40R20 fronts and 295/35R20 reArs

Thanks for the info. I think 15 front and 20 rear spacers will be good for my set up. Your ride is clean!:thumbup:

I have style 32 wheels on 20mm front 25mm rear. I have rolled fenders, and did have to make a few minor changes to the fender liner in the front

So my set up should work without rolling the fenders? My tires are 45 front and 40 rear. Higher than normal. Do you have pics of your set up? I would like to see 20mm and 25 mm on a 745. Thanks for the info.

Wait so you're running 245/45/20 & 275/40/20 instead of 245/40/20 & 275/35/20 which is what I run ? Pm more info on the spacer , I too was thinking of adding them , new longer lugs required ?
Thanks

I'm running the same tire set up as you. The eibach spacers come with longer lugs for the front 15mm spacers. The rear 20mm spacers come with lugs to bolt the spacer onto the hub, than you need another set of lugs to bolt the wheel onto the spacer. My lugs that were on my wheels were to long so they just switched the lugs and it bolted on perfectly. Can anyone confirm if the ECS or H&R spacers need just 10 lugs total? The eibachs need 20 lugs for the 20mm. The ride is smooth and the look is noticably sportier. No ugly sunken in wheels. Geah!!

Do those spacers bolt onto the Hub? Or do they just sit flat on the hub and the wheels bolt onto the spacer and hub? Eibach 20mm spacers have to use a total of 10 Lugs on each side. 20 on the rear total!

I currently have 45 front and 40 rear. With the Eibach lowering springs and Eibach rear spacers I dont have any issues. If I hit a dip on the freeway my right rear fender barely rubs. Im just trying to make my stock look a little more sportier and with the combination of the springs and spacers it got the job done! Geah!

The spacers can go rear/front. Measure how many mm you need to get the look you're going for and then order the proper size. Read what is included in the kits. With spacers, it is highly recommended you use longer bolts. Some kits come with it and some are just the spacers.

From your avatar, I see you have a sports package. Your car already sits lower. I would go with 20mm or 15mm for rears to prevent rubbing. I actually have to roll my fenders today. Went out last night and the rears rubbed on big dips.

Pretty sure ECS is good quality as well. Be sure to properly torque the bolts on the wheels/spacers. Recheck after a day and retorque the bolts. Check it often to make sure everything is bolted on properly for safety. Your car will look great with spacers. Those wheels are really nice but definitely swallowed in. Will look much better flush.

hey guys... I just got some 20mm spacers for my car and took them down to firestone to have them put on with my new conti's I just got. They told me they wouldnt put them on because it's a liability and I shouldnt do so and it also takes a special technique to put them on? wtf... don't you just put the deeper lugs on in a star pattern as you would without and be good with it? Thanks!

Most tire shops won't use spacers or recommend them and won't install cause of liability reasons. They are safe to use as long as you mount them properly and torque the bolts to spec. Make sure to recheck after a day of driving and recheck often. When you mount the spacer onto the hub, be sure it's flush all around, no gaps. Bolt on the wheels star pattern with longer lug nuts. Be sure they turn 8-10 times before tightening.

I have to say that the ESC 's 20MM spacers all around made 100% difference on the stance of my 7 , vehicle now looks by far more masculine :thumbup: , very happy I pulled the trigger on these , anyways I will post up so,e pictures tomorrow . If you look at the above picture you'll notice how my wheels are all the way in the fender , guess what , NO MAS :D
