Just installed spacers. 20mm Front 30mm Rear

Installed spacers this weekend. 20mm in the front and 30mm in the rear. Got the 30mm H&R spacers from CLOWNIN745 for a great deal. Here's some pix.

I like the stance. You didnt lower it and it looks good that way.

cool, looking at those spacers those may be the ones i get if i decide to keep my wheels, i like the fact that you wouldn't have to buy longer studs.

Would spacers cause shaking or difference in tire wear?

Thanks guys for all the positive feedbacks. Haven't had a chance to take the car out but I did take it around the neighborhood test out the ride quality and fitment. No vibrations 0-50. Fronts rub slightly while backing up driveway at a slant. Might have to roll the fenders at the rear prevent rubbing.
