    I have the following wheels all 4 in 19x9.0

    https://voxxwheel.com/wheel/8632/VoxxReplica/Mustang Performance?finishID=9

    I love the wheels, love my car now. But I am getting suspvision work done this week, my front end is dropping 1.125 inch and rear 1 inch using suspension from steeda and their progressive lowering springs (getting full kit) struts shocks etc.

    my friend tossed out idea of getting spacers for rear or all wheels to make my wheels sit more flush with car.

    I don’t know and never done this before, what stance do people go for? Is it fronts backs or all? What sizing do I need if so; and what is the strongest safest spacers?

    I want quality. And what would look best set up?

    This is my car now before lowering springs are installed. Give me your opinions and my options!

    Unless you do extended studs too, you'd want an adapter style spacer that is 20-25mm. 25 is what people usually use for the PP wheels, but your specs are a bit different.

    You'd want all four wheels because the tuck is going to be exaggerated once the springs are in.

    the min. you can go with pp1 wheels without c'boring the wheels or cutting the OEM lugs is 23mm. 25mm will work with some tires depending on the shape.

    Here’s my exact wheel specs.

    so guide me! What do I need lol.

    Everyone wanted like a grand for Pp take offs in my area that was scuffed and beat up, so I purchased these. Would be great if I found something to work with what I have.

    These are awesome wheels, and powdered vs paint.

    Now don’t know if it matters, but the lugs on my wheels are smaller than oem, I have gorilla lugs, they are a smaller design though

    if I go all 4, I can still rotate my wheels just fine

    Will putting spacers mess with all the suspension work I’m putting on car? Would hate to ruin the 1400 in suspension parts I just bought


    Camber plates struts shocks springs sway bars., will this ruin my alignment or no difference once all is done?

    What does the back side of the wheel look like? Does it have pockets casted in between the log holes? If so how deep?

    ignore the putty stuff in center cap, I use auto car wash and water was being pushed behind the cover caps and causing rust to come out the center later

    so I stuck silicone in there to seal it up, worked well. Just nasty behind the cap now. 400FD48E-5252-4755-AF7B-EE905F464D2C.jpeg 1895B307-754C-4D7B-BEB8-5A5A6C5D186F.jpeg 2B3C8FA0-3252-4DF8-BA00-9E3439FFEB47.jpeg

    I don’t have a level crazy horse, I guess I will be buying one this week. Lol

    I was hoping this was a normal known calculation here. I figure being replica- it was same as pp wheels.

    You don't need a level to do what Bill was suggesting, just something a straight edge to hold up from the wheel/tire. You want to figure out how much further out you want them to sit. 20mm should bring it to about what I have here. 25mm would be out a tad more. 5mm is about .2".

    Here I am reading about like anything above 5mm spacers needing extended lugs,

    do they make 20mm spacers? What widths are your tires? Mine are 19x9.0 @ 45 offset. Wondering if your suggestion of 20mm would be more or less than your set up.

    I love your cars look. Would like to get that.
    What product did you buy?

    I think your rims are factory offset of 35 mine are offset of 45

    how does this factor? Does this mean mine are or yours is further out already? Will that mean 20mm on mine will be further or closer inside, meaning maybe I need 15mm or 25mm or whatever to make up for the offset.


    Thanks!


    I actually don’t know your guys’s oem offset,
    Google is telling me random numbers 5F3CFF99-51DD-48C4-BEE8-3D3C8DE1B21B.png
