Spacers or Not is the question~

Okay my current rear wheel offset is +35..19x9.5
The pix shown below compares how it looks like with 5mm spacer(left) and without spacer(right)

I was wondering if anyone with spacer can chime in..
Is using spacers save on high speed( e.g. 80 mph++ )

Or should I just leave it just like that?

The spacers look good. Also, when you mention your offset you should also mention what your wheel width is because +35 on a 9.5" wheel (I assume that's what you have if you are putting on a spacer) is different than a +35 offset on a 10" wheel (would be equal to roughly +25 on a 9.5").

BTW, moving to the wheel/tire forum.

I put 10mm spacers on with my AC's. Have had no problems and take it 100 on a regular basis.
