Wheel Spacers??

Anybody have wheel spacers and some pictures. I have 17x10.5 rims with 315s in the rear and am looking into some wheel spacers to give me that stance im looking for, I want the tires to stick out more, like a kind old school muscle car look.

Its too much. It'll looks stupid AND get even more rocks n shit scraping up your rear bumper.

AT MOST 3/8" spacer. I experimented, and I found 1/4-3/8" the best stance. Also, if you are planning to have your car lowered in the rear more than 1.25" you'll have to roll the fenders to hell and back.

Lol. Thanks. The spacers that are on my car are the 1/4" ones btw. If you have 315's, you shouldn't need more than 1/4" to bring the tires just flush with the fender. It bugged me when I first lowered the car on the 315's so I put the spacer on and rolled the fenders, never looked back.

I run 1/2" spacers on 10.5" wheels and needed to roll the fenders for clearance

Where does one get these wheel spacers and what's available?

I don't want to drop a couple hundred bucks on wheel spacers but I know I need them for my Weld fronts.

i was reading the posts, i've had wheel spacers with my 10.5 rims with 315's and i think i had 1/4 and they look ABSOLUTELY SEXY! but sadly i had to sell it and now i have a bone stock 97 GT, i was wondering, with the stock suspension and tires and rims, would 1 1/4" be to much??? would it hurt my rear axle???

95 GT - nothing stock on her R.I.P.
97 GT - New hotness: CAI, 70mm TB, TB Plennum, PI Intake

comming soon: PI H/C, shorty headers, o/r x, lower car, sub frames, cc plates, torque box kit, rear U/L control arms, NO2 kit 100 shot.

My Cobra has 35mm Eibach hubcentric spacers. I love them! It weighs about 4 pounds each so you are adding some rational weight but since weight is closer to the center as possible, it's really not a huge issue.

This is a seven year old thread. Topless hasn't posted anything in six years. Jazzer gave up four years ago after blowing a new motor. F8L and Saxman haven't posted anything for over a year.

I have to admit it was kind of nice seeing the old names again.

Yeah Facebook has killed most of the forums, but this one still seems like the most active.

Facebook is only good for catfishing, which is why there are more Camaro pages than mustang pages lol

Facebook is good for other things. People tend to post all of their sins on Facebook so that future employers can see them. People also tend to post all of their personal information for hackers to read. All the hackers have to do is say they forgot the password and then answer the security question with the answer they got from your Facebook account. I don't have a Facebook account... yet. I don't really want one but if everything goes to Facebook I may have to change my mind.
