Should I do 12mm or 15mm spacer?










The specs on my rear Work wheels are 19x10+33 with a 265/30/19 falken 452 tire. I currently have a burger motorsports 10mm spacers install on the rear which makes the new offset +23. Now i think i have a few more MM's to fit a 12mm or 15mm spacer in the rear...my rear fenders are rolled....so do you guys think i should do a 12mm or 15mm in the rear? i dont want to deal with rubbing...any help is appreciated

I put a 15mm spacer on my old 335 when I had 10's in the rear and it looked alot better then without. Fenders were rolled and no real rubbing issues at all. Go with the 15mm spacers atleast

Damn it's beem so long I totally forgot what the offsets were on my old DPE. I know the weren't aggressive at all something around your offsets I am thinking. Trust me atleast go with the 15mm spacer. And if your really not happy do what I did and buy some new rims with aggressive offsets and widths. That's the best bet brother

I figured the offsets out one time but I don't remember exactly what they ended up being. You will have no problem running a 15mm spacer, trust me

I'm sure I'll run on dips and such with a 15mm spacer in the rear

Or when I have ppl in my car or when I drop the top...

do 15mm in the rear and you'll be fine. I have 19x10 +20 with same tire setup, and I feel like I can push it out more to make it flush.

to me it looks like you will rub if you go bigger than 10mm spacers.

I bought the 15mm spacer

When I install the 15mm spacer my rear wheels will be +18 on a 19x10 rim
I hope I only rub when on crappy roads or when I put the top down or i really hope I don't rub at all lol

Just installed the 15mm rear spacers, and I'm rubbin on small dips ......

damn you guys think if i switch my rear tires to 255/30/19 in the rear then the rubbing will go away? I currently have a 265/30/19 in the rear and with the 15mm spacer in the rear my rear offset is now +18

Looks better with those spacers. You say your rubbing did you do any work to your fenders ie. roll, pull, cut?

It's telling you that you have a correct size and offset.
