Wheel spacers with stock suspension

I had the boys at EAS throw on some wheel spacers today. Specs are Macht Schnell, 12mm fronts and 10mm rears. I was worried about how the spacers would look with stock suspension, but they turned out really good. If you're not interested in lowering and want a better stance spacers are the way to go. The wheels don't look so sucked in like they do with the stock set up.

I'll post some pics tomorrow.

Nice, this is the setup I was looking for. I just got the spacers and will be installing them when the snow melts a bit more.

Cant wait to see this as well. Does anyone expect greater potential of rock chip from road debris due to a wider stance? I guess that goes for guys going with wider aftermarket wheels as well.

Yes...slightly. Get XPEL Ultimate wrap on rocker panels and behind rear tires.

Will this wrap make my car look more shiny or do they have a flat version in this wrap?

Oh yeah, forgot you are frozen! I'm pretty sure they make a matte wrap, but I'm not too familiar with it.

Call Evan at autoarmour.com

He rocks!

I know for sure Evan @ autoarmour has a matte finish wrap. He does an awesome job and he's in SD.

The car is definitely more exposed to rock chips because of the wider stance. Like Rob said, the best insurance is to the wrap the rockers.

Thanks for the pics! Do you have some showing the side view?

I have a set of locking wheel bolts. Anyone know if I will be able to use them with spacers? If not are there longer locking bolts available?

Thanks?

If your locks are for the stock setup you'll need to get an extended lock bolt to work depending on what spacer you go with.

No I didn't take any side view shots. You'll have to purchase some extended wheel locks.

Looks good. What exhaust do you have? The tips don't look stock.
