Default I need spacer help!! :(

Ok so i never thought i would have to get spacers, but unfortunately, i think the time has come. I got coilovers over the summer and was running 18x8.5 +35 Axis Reverbs. Well, it's winter now and my stock wheels (yes, wheels not tires) are rubbing on my coilovers. I got a new alignment to lessen the camber and that didn't help...So i have resorted to spacers.

1) If you have a better idea please let me know so i don't make a stupid decision

2) Can someone help me out with which ones to get/ whether i will need to buy hub centric rings as well? ...I'm soo lost.

This is what i have found and decided that 20mm would be ideal since that would give me an offset similar to my Reverbs.


Thanks in advance!

This sounds like you're insanely low or running some blue whale sized coilovers.

Sell you stock wheels and get some 17x8 +48 Rotas for winter wheels.

How bad are you rubbing? Is it just barely, or are you jammed up against the coilover. And where exaclty is it rubbing? On the spring? Spring perch? What coilovers do you have?
