Exclamation Help with Wheel Spacers

Hello,

I am about to buy these wheel spacers for my rear tires, but I'm not sure what size to go with. They sell 10, 12, 15 and 18mm. I'm thinking either 15mm or 18mm, but I have no experience with this and need some guidance.

Are the Burger Tuning spacers I'm looking at okay, or is there another brand I should consider? What size should I go with to make sure the rear tires are at least flush with the fender, if not sticking out slightly? If I got too wide will I compromise the ride quality or anything else I should be aware of?

Your feedback is greatly appreciated. I don't want to f**k this up.

Regards

What wheels are you going with? If your considering adding the spacers to your stock Style 327 17" wheels in your photo, I would say save your money for some wheels and tires.

The photo in my sig needs to be updated. I should have included this in my original post... I have the M Performance V-Spoke 20" wheels which are 9" wide in the rear. I believe the stock tires were 8" in the rear. I will post some pictures soon, but I want to get some spacers on first. I thought maybe because the new tires are wider it would fill the gap, but nope.

What are the offsets on the 20s?

I believe your 20s are probably +44 for the rears. I would probably go with the 12mm spacers. You will simply be shifting your wheels outward by the distance of the spacer, so take a look, take some measurements and determine the look you want. 25.4mm is equal to an inch so the 12mm spacers would shift your wheels outward by a half of an inch.
Hope this helps.

Thanks. The offset on the rears are 44 EH2+. I'll take some measurements today. Anyone have any feedback on the BMS spacers?

I realize you have aftermarket 20" wheels, but here is some good info. Some on these threads have used BMS spacers.
