my Q is : with lowering the Z i must got less mm spacer to get flush look ??
as if i get 15mm F 20mm R with lowering i get the look of 20mm&25mm ??
or not
thank you
yes, you are right, it will require less as the drop alters camber, but still, best thing to do, is INSTALL your springs, install your camber kit then measure - reason being is wheel flushness is a subjective issue and you have to decide how flush you want it......to some, a 5mm difference in spacer is the difference between being happy or not........so i still suggest you measure and decide...........i know this because im currently wanting 15mm spacers, because with the after market wheels im running, im thinking 15mm would be better than the 20mm i currently have installed........."to each their own"

let me ask about it in another way :
is better to go with spacer out of the fenders and get a negative camber to fix it to flush Or from inside fenders and positive to reach flush ?
( one more time : get 25mm or 30mm and bring it in with negative camber or 20mm/15mm and pull it out with positive camber)

when i say better i mean better in handling, looks, safer for tires and its mechanical part of the tires.

thank you

Hi,

I went through the thread, but didn't see anybody has the same setup as I do. Therefore, I decided to ask and hopefully someone will chime in. I'm thinking to get wider tires such as 245/40/18F, 275/40/18R or something similar without rubbing. Here is my current setup.

Wheels: OEM Rays Track
Spacers: H&R 25mm (F & R)
Springs: Tein S-Tech

Thanks for your help.

There is some example as I want with rims that I have:
That's my car when I still had my stockies. I had 30mm rear and 25mm front.


KICS with Hubcentric rings is what is on the car and also is one of the easiest to install because the studs are already set in the spacers.

Just torque to 85lB's like your wheels and thats it.

My wheel setup: G35 19" Forged wheels 19x8 Front 245/40/19 & 19x8.5 Rear 255/40/19.

Spacers: 20mm Front & 25mm Rear

The fronts are nice and flush, the rears are sticking out and rubbing like a crazy! Should i get 20mm for the rears or fender roll?

^ there is no point in decreasing your spacers if you havent rolled your fenders.......so fender roll first and then go from there...

The torque spec was one of the only things I was able to read on the paper that came with my KICS (it was all in Japanese).

the front offsets are 30mm 19x8 w/ 25mm it will make it 5mm

the rear offsets are 33mm 19x8.5 w/ 20mm it will make it 13mm

is this kinda of weird?

You'll be able to tell how weird it is when you swap them.

somehow the rubbing has stopped to a certain point. At first it would just constantly rub. After three days unless its a serious bump or waviness on the road will not rub.

Going to lower the car soon so getting the fenders rolled anyways over the weekend.

What a great question.

I want to know the best spacers + studs for 06 base wheels, to give the most flush with the fender look?

Hey guys, I am looking to order some spacers this week, so I had a question about the hubcentric rings (before I saw this thread) so I gave CZP a call. They said that although the Project Kics rings will fit on the CZP spacers, that with stock wheels, I do not need the rings. Then I came on here and did a search, found this thread, and see that people in here are running the hub-centric rings with their stock wheels.

I don't know why CZP would tell me that you don't need them because I'm ordering from them anyway (had many good experiences with CZP parts in the past), and would have also ordered the rings from them if they told me I needed them. Which is it??

Any downside to running them without rings? Does anybody on here have spacers without them, any bad experiences? I'm confused now because I know CZP knows their stuff..
