i'm running 20mm OMP spacers on the rear with stock 15" BBS. they only rub a little under hard bumps. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: ANYONE RUNNING WHEEL SPACERS? (jonny_breakz)

Just FYI, adding spacers to just the rear of your car will have an adverse affect on handling (more understeer). I can't tell you just how much of a difference it would make, but if you're not going to auto-x/track your car, it probably won't make that big a difference.

Thanks for the Tip....but its a cabby and it is not build for any kind of racing...its just a cruizer...

Re: ANYONE RUNNING WHEEL SPACERS? (jonny_breakz)

I've got spacers on my 88 cabby. I am running 205 40 17's and needed the spacers because the lugs were too long. No problems or rubs. Can send you pics if you need it...

I know it's off topic but I have the same color cabby and I was wanting to keep it the same color but what bumpers would look good with the gold color?

Re: (Speedemon)

lm also running 8mm spacers out back with my 16x7. Ony reason I am is because the right rear tire was rubbing on my H&R springs. When I setup my suspension with Ground Control and if there is enough room I will be removing the spacers becasue of the handling affects. I dont notice that much but Im sure if I really pushed it maybe.

8mm in the back...needs to be like 15mm

You really wanna space that out a bit more?
I think it looks great. I think I'll get me some
wheel spacers but what size I'm rockin some teardrops
on my cabby, I think that at least the 8mm might just
go for the 15

thanks for showin us how your 8s look

Re: ANYONE RUNNING WHEEL SPACERS? (1lowcab)

I finally got some pictures up. the rears have two spacers each of about 14mm
finall spacing is between 28 and 30mm

Hope that helps
Oh forgot to dsay that it's running stock suspension so if i want to lower it i'll possibly have to take one of the spacers out. We shall see
