Wheel Spacer Size for Style 230 Rims

Hey,

I was thinking after winter when I put my summer rims back on about getting a set of spacers. Currently the rims look a little too sunken in and I would like them to sit more flush with the outside of the car. Are there any recommendations on the size of spacers I should get? Also any certain sites to order them off of? I appreciate the help, here are a couple shots of my car right now and how it sits.




Thanks,

Patrick

As far as spacer size, check your gap.



As for spacer brand, there are plenty of reputable brands out there. Check the vendor classifieds to see if anyone on the site is running a special on some.

What are the offsets and specs on 230s? Looking at the back I would say maybe 15 or 20, 10 to 12 for the fronts. Just my guesstimation.

So 15 up front to make it +22
20 in back for +19
That's if you want like crazy flush. You will have to roll or shave your rear fenders more than likely. If you just want a decent fitment with no rubbing issues I'd suggest 10 for fronts, 15 for rears. Hope this helps. Best of luck.
