no,there isn't a single person here that uses spacers on their stock wheels. I certainly was not running 15mm fronts/25mm rears.

I recently read and found pics on the forums of one person with spacers on their 06+ stock rims. Im pretty sure they used 15mm or 20mm. If you have stock camber 20mm spacers will work without a problem I believe.

excuse the horrible pic, but 25mm in the rear. 30mm will work with some negative camber.

25mm in front max. 30mm in the rear max.

I'm waiting on someone to put up pictures of this setup.

Do spacers effect driving dynamics and or rolling inertia in any way?

What roll do they play on fuel economy?

Sorry for the uber newb questions. I plan on getting some soon for my G coupe. Thanks in advance

Your wheels are farther apart, which would affect the handling, but not in any kind of noticeable way.

No noticeable change in fuel economy since your tires and wheels are still the same dimension. Maybe .01% less since you have more weight at the wheel hubs.

25mm is the max you want to go with unrolled fenders. 30mm your gonna have to roll, unless your at stock height, even then you'll probly rub.

25mm front/rear with gf210 drop. Rear is at -1.5 camber, I personally think rolling the fenders and bringing out the wheels another 5mm would look better.

Yeah. I'm indecisive about what wheels to put on. I've always loved the gunmetal volk gts but on the other hand I want to stay away from the polished lip look.

So whatever, stock wheels it is for now.
