Default Wheel Spacers 2013 WRX

Hey everyone!

I was thinking about getting some wheel spacers for my 2013 WRX because to my understanding they just space out the wheel and make it more flush with the wide body? Im not too sure how they work/what's a good brand/expensive/beneficial or what. If anyone has some information they wouldn't mind sharing i'd be much appreciative! Thanks.

first....we have a wheel/tire specific forum where these types of questions should be located....

secondly....there is a TON of information on this forum relating to spacers, you just have to search for it.

You searched and didn't read the common answer of "If you run wheel spacers you will need longer wheel studs to insure proper thread engagement with your lug nuts?" Weird.

Google could have answered your question. Get the ones with studs already in them. You'll find good brands if you search on here.

Do you know what I hate about mouth breathers like you?

In order to prove to you that you didn't search, I have to actually do the work for you. This is just a small sampling of the links that came up when I searched for wheel spacers. Thats all I typed.

Out of 499 results (searching for threads only), only about 100 of the results were FS threads. Meaning the rest contain pertinent info.

No, but it's the single most important info you need to know.
