5th gen spacer help.

Well i am wanting to pop the front tires out and the rear tires just a tad more. I was thinking 10mm in front and 15 in the rear. I see ebay has a wide selection of spacer but how am i supposed to know which one with fit my rim/car? Also what does the 114.3 mean in 4x114.3?

HOw do these look for the rear? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/5x114...Q5fAccessories

Re: 5th gen spacer help.

anyone please feel free to prove me wrong but my experiences with spacers any over 10 seriously weaken the structural integrity of the hub in general axle and all, but im going from my experience with my supra, i had a 15 spacer on the rear for awhile and wound snapping the studs and a few other things that wound up destroying my diff.
but thats experience from a completly different car

imo id keep at 10 and wait and buy meatier wheels and tires but thats just me

Re: 5th gen spacer help.

i forgot to ask will you be doing any type of strenuous driving with this car if you get spacers?

i have pictures of wat a 15 spacer did to my supra and honestly it wasnt worth it

but if you insist on spacers DO NOT skimp out on them they are at very vital part of the car. i would strongly reccomend ARP wheel studs BEFORE you buy the spacers, again i learned the hard way
