has anyone tried the 1inch (25mm) bolt on wheel spacers in the rear? i gues the real question is, did you have to cut the studs to make them fit or the 25mm wheel spacers where thick enough to cove rthe studs?

Thanks

Spacers that wide should have their own studs pressed in for the wheels.

I think he wants to know if the studs on the car will be to long and poke thru the spacer.If
thats the case you won't have any problems and you don't have to cut the studs off.
I understand the question. The answer is you can only use a spacers with the extra studs pressed into it like the picture above for the wheels.

You can not use a regular spacer. The stock studs are not long enugh to go through a 1 inch spacer and the wheel.

i am using a spacer like the one in the picture, i am wondering if the stock studs will go through the spacer at all, because the wheel attaches to the spacer studs not the stock studs

definitely sits wider and looks more substantial, but the handling has really changed, lots more grip in the rear, also feels a tad softer in the rear too.:thumbsup:

you can really push it hard in the corners now, threshold for swapping ends is much higher, highly recommended
I have noticed this improvement too when i swapped to lower offset wheels. The wider track makes the car feel quite different in a good way. Makes me wonder how it would be with a wide body and negative offset wheels.

Are you guys just doing them on the rear, or both ends? Is there an advantage to just doing the rear?

I'm going to put some Eibach camber bolts on mine and might throw those in too. I see they have 5mm, 15mm and 20mm versions.

What about 15mm on the front, and 20mm on the rear?

Anybody try something like that?
