20mm spacers + 10 bolts....arrived as described on their website...
quality very good
no shaking at speeds over 90mph :eeps:
i think i should ordered 25mm ones instead of 20mm...to bring the rims out more
but then i am ordering H&R lowering springs so i think 20mm was a good choice
will post pics later this evening

thanks guys...
good products...good prices:thumbup:
Looks great!
You still need to bring those wheels way out. I would put those on the front and measure to see how much clearance you still have in the rear.

Looks like you have at least 10mm to go still.
Yeah that's what it looks like...but rim is flush with fender...my rear tire is 275and and I will put 295 on there
...the thing is I am ordering lowering springs that should drop the car down at least 20-25mm...used tape from inner side of fender and with springs it should look better

What is the width and offset of your wheels?

Do you plan on rolling your fenders?
I have no idea...I think rear ones are 20x10.5 or 11....I measured them when I got them...the thing is I bought the rims of one guy from CL for 550sale cash with brand new tires installed.....so they look and must be some cheap brand...but I don't care:)
thing is when I look from top of the fender the bottom part of the rim that touches ground is perfectly flush with fender...upper part is more in because of camber angle I think...how do you measure offset?
I have never rolled fenders but I see lots of people do on this forum

I will try and snap some photos of my wheels/fenders. I run a 20" with a 275 in the back.
Measuring offset is not super easy, buy my guess is the wheels will be stamped with it somewhere on the back, either on the spokes or on the hub. look for the width stamped on there and the offset will either read "+20 or it might say et20". I'm not sure if thats the number, just for example.

Then once you have offset and width you can calculate your new offset by adding the spacer

And they aren't 11" wide, my guess is they aren't 10.5". Tough to say, but based on how they look my guess would be a 10" wheel.
took a pic...from outer edge to outer edge is 11"...i know you have to measure the rim from inside the edges but i think its 10.5" taking into account that 11" is outer measure..
and next time ill take the rims off ill look for markings to know the offset...
only markings i found is JIL which i found is stamped on all rims and means they are DOT approved...
if you can take your pics so i see how yours look

but i think problem are also 20" rims themself...since they have a 4.5" lip they look small on 7 series :dunno:
will have to find some 22s for cheap:)
