There's so much shit out there saying wheel spacers are bad, but 99% of the time when something goes wrong it's user error. Install them properly, and you will not have a problem.

i have 15mm on mine. but i heard over time 25mm messes up your lugs and rotation :dontknow:
for real? are you having any rubbing issue on the inner side of the the fender well? so 15mm is the best choice then? :confused:

you're running 15mm on 4 tires?

15mm put more stress than the 25mm. The 15mm spacer you have to use longer wheel studs where the 25mm have its own set of studs.

i know... that's why i sold mine and ordered a 25mm... don't want to replace the stock bolts and put the one included on the 15mm's... :thumbsup:
