I have 18mm spacers and there perfect! 20 would be hellaflush I think. But I did not want to do the extension bolts.

Whoops, yes I do! I meant with 20mm+ you have the bolts going from hub to spacer, then separate bolt going through to wheel. I donít like that. Sorry for the confusion!

I think my friend has 25mm all around with extended lugs. He's also on H&R sports and doesn't rub surprisingly.

I have 189's w/ the same offset as 162s... I run 12mm front and 15mm rear... looks pretty good but the rear could go with 18mm (possible rub though)

Looks like you can do 20mm pretty easily.

Looks good. Any experience with the 20mm rear setup with two adults in the back on a bumpy road?

Can't say if I've been in that exact situation but no issues with rubbing so far.

17.5s in the rear. If Im on a fast road and hit a HUGE bump then yes I hear it rub for a second. But thats a pretty decent bump with a passenger in the back.

I installed some BSM spacers,18mm rear and 12mm front? I contacted RAD about some extended wheel locks for a staggered set up. Unfortunately they don't do staggered set ups. They stated I would need to buy two different sets.

Is there anyway around this? How have others done it with staggered set up?

I have 15mm in the rears and nothing up front. Been debating to put 10up front. I had 12 mm and didn't like how the front wheel stuck out to much. I like how the 15mm look in rear. Brings them out but still a little tucked in the fender.
