^ oh really? speaking from experience ehhh?

rolled on 25mm spacers for a year personally... no problems

Ichiba or Kics makes great spacers... people drift and track on them and they hold up great!

not too mention how many others I've known that have run 15mm-25mm spacers

It's funny not only have I driven aggressively on these with 50k+ miles on my car, but people I know can daily drive their car and go to the track on the weekends with them and never have one problem

there is always one guy in every crowd like Uncle Scotty speaking farse he heard on the internet

some of us are smart enough to buy the right wheels in the first place and dont rely on a poor band-aid to MAKE something work.

and the op noob likely has not the technical knowhow to keep himself from becoming a statistic in the event that something has been done poorly or is left unispected for too long

an inch spacer is the purest fantasy in any event
