I plan on running spacers because I don't have a few grand to spend on new wheels right now, as much as I would like to the funds just are not there. Only reason the car is even getting new tires is because the threads are completely showing otherwise they wouldn't even bet getting changed. Don't hate that I want to run spacers and stretch tires on my oem wheels to try and make my car look a little better on a budget. Not all of us can afford to drop a few grand on new wheels twice a year like some of the people on here do.

Thank you I appreciate the info, what would look similar on an 8 inch wheel for the front?
