spacers on pre-lci sport pkg stock wheels

for the rears I couldn't decide on 20mm or 15mm so decided on 18mm. For the front I changed my original plan of 10mm to 12mm based on other posts on this forum. From certain angles I feel there is a little too much poke and wish I went with 15 rear and 10 front. Just wanted to throw it out there for anyone else who may be deciding this and leans towards the more conservative type of mods. I've got 2 kids and it's a daily driver. Another thing it helped me decide is when I get springs I will definitely go with eibach pro's vs H&R sport due to the slightly more conservative drop.

That's what i'm going with. 15mm spacers on the rears and still debating on 10mm in the front or just leaving the front's alone. My 15mm spacer's come in tomorrow. I like u, didnt want to much poke, just wanted to push them out a bit.

Thanks for this! I'm actually thinking about spacers as my next mod, just still on the fence on whether or not to use them and then how much do I want to push things out. What brand of spacers did you use?

IMO you chose the best size spacers for the front and back, looks very nice and flush

I would have gone zero front and 15mm rear. But I dont think there is too much poke actually and with the eibach (good choice) you'll see it's perfect.

I think the rear looks perfect but I would agree that the front is out just a little too much. Not that it looks bad at all, the car looks great.

Looks great! 10mm could have made it look like it matched the back better but overall i think it looks fine. Once lowered itll be perfect.

10mm up front is what i did (had to grind the hub though) and 15s out back. Wish i went to 18s out back.

Thanks for all the comments. I agree with the post above ^ regarding the front but don't think I'm going to bother changing them for a 2mm difference, plus the eibachs pros should pull the whole look together.
Regarding the other post asking which spacers....They are Burger Tunning, Mike@n54tunning.com has them for a great price including bolts. They are hub centric and seem very well made, no issues pre or post install.

Looks like the front sticks out a bit more than the rear, I'd probably do 10mm and 18mm. Very nice though.
