Not a great pic, but it's exactly what you're looking for. 15mm BMS spacers in the rear, stock front with 162's. For what it's worth, I don't think it looks like a rabbit, but I may be biased.

I have 189's (same offset as 162s) w/ 15mm in the rear and 12mm up front... it looks better with front and rear spacers...

what if I just did 12mm in the rear? Would that kill the 'rabbit' effect?

hey yea this is exactly what I was thinking. any way you could snap a rear view pic so I could see how they line up on a straight line?

thats perfect....thanks so much. does not look bad at all IMO. Does not seem to have the "rabbit" look others were mentioning. what about from the front? do you think the back seems too pushed out when looking from the front angle?

thanks again!

No, I don't think it looks too pushed out.
Just to be clear, I'm not saying the front looks better without spacers, I just think it looks fine the way it is. If I had some 12mm spacers, I'd use them, but since I have not yet purchased any and it looks good the way it is, I'm in no hurry. Good luck!

Here's my car with Breyton GTS race wheels. I have 8.5" all around. I believe 162s are 8.5" in the back. So it's similar.

Dude stop creating threads and bumping them. Just get 20's. They will fit and you can stop fretting over $90 worth of spacers.

I had 162's on sport suspension with 18mm rear and 10mm front spacers. It looks great. No rubbing.

IMO, it needs both front and rear spacers if the rear spacer exceeds 12mm. If less no need for a front spacer (it will still look pretty stock, minus the recession of the rear wheel into the fender, pre-LCI that is).

Then I lowered the car on H&R Sport springs and it looked perfect. No rubbing.

Pics with 18r/10f no drop:

Hope this helps!
