quick wheel spacers question.
Hi guys I was just wondering if any of you guys here are running spacers with stock R/T wheels.
I was looking to push my wheels to the out corners to handle better and get a more aggressive look. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm running 3mm spacers on my fronts only, but not crazy about using them and won't go more than that. I think other guys are as high as 1/4" on stock studs.
Also, don't think spacers will improve handling-may actually hinder by pushing the wheel mass further out.
Ahhh... the subject of spacers. lol!
If you end up getting spacers, make sure they're hub-centric and from a reputable company. Enkei and H&R come to mind.
Here's a site with some great info on spacers. H&R Trak+
I have H&R 30mm spacer ADAPTERS. This pic below shows the difference between spacers (left) and spacer adapters (far right).
Spacers still use the stock studs whilst adapters have their own studs that the wheels bolt to.
Because I went with adapters, I didn't deal with the situation that Magnitude brought up in his post above.
Here's a pic of the aluminum/magnesium fatty patty adapter.
My application is super aggressive and took rolling and massaging the fenders to overcome rubbing.
If you're going with a traditional spacer, I'd get more info from other members that use them. In my situation, as long as the adapters are installed correctly, hub-centric and of good quality, they'll work just fine.

Adapters are the way togo in my book i run them on my car with the 390 M&H drag raidals and have been several 10 second passes on them. I fyou go adapters make sure you get the upgraded lugs
Thanks guy for all the info i will give it a read.
