Adding Spacers to the Rear.

I have the M style rear wheels on my car that are 20"x10" to have the 275 staggered look. My question is, would adding spacers make it look any better? I have not lowered the car, but would entertain the idea if it were not too costly. I am leasing it and have already have the Dinan Stage II, so I am at a point that I do not want to dump much more into it because I will most likely trade out of it in 2 more years.

5mm max, any more on the 20' without lowering would make the car look retarded.

Thanks for the advice. I have not checked into the cost of lowering. Any ideas on what that would run? With it being lowered, what size of spacer would be recommended? Sorry for all the questions, but the search bar sucks.

H&R springs, lowering link is the cheapest way to go. I think they will run about 359.00+installation+alignment.

If you do lower it, I think you can run 10mm in the back and 5mm in the front to make it flush.
