    I will never be able to lower my car due to where I live so I thought I'd get some spacers. In these photos, 18mm looks really good in the photos below (imo) but in real life, the 18mm spacers makes the rear wheels stick out in a bad way. This is due to the rear bumper tapering inwards giving it a monster truck effect.


    I think i'm going to invest in some high quality H&R spacers instead so I'll most likely get 15mm in the front. For the back, I can't decide between 15mm or 10mm. I'm worried the 15mm for the rear will still stick out too far. I'm worried about the 10mm as I dont know what it will look like.


    Any thoughts?

    The 18mm look good, but that's just me

    Some have done 20m in the rear, so I don't think 18 is really sticking out. People like matching the top of the fender width to the tire. The bottom isn't going to match up (almost ever) due to the taper, but that is normal. If the taper bothers you, you'd probably have to go basically back to stock in the rear.

    I think it looks fine man. That little bit of rubber sticking out past the bumper, I think that makes it look aggressive like you have wider tires than stock.
