Anyone running rear spacers only??? (and rear brake h*ll)

I'd like to bring the rear wheels out a tad bit more, but without stressing out any vital parts. What would be a good width? 10mm?? 20mm???
By the way, getting those 8mm allen bolts out of the rear carriers are a real PITA. Liquid Wrench, propane torch, over and over....and over. And over. I almost body slammed the car off the jackstands. Just had to get that off my chest.

I had 15mm ( i think thats what i used) H&R spacers in the back with stock wheels and it took the wheels out flush with the fender. I plan on getting another set when i get my next set of wheels (thats if i ever get around to buying another set).

I have 12mm spacers its a very nice look with 17" wheels. I didn't have to roll the rear fender. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I have 8mm spacers on my wagon with 18's and have no rubbing. I lowered it pretty low and still no problems. I have a speaker box in the rear and can hold 4 people in it.
