Default Spacers on stock setup

Anybody running spacers on their stock wheels?

I just want my wheels to be flush with fenders.

Pros/Cons? References?

Thanks

I ran 5mm spacers for awhile until I tracked down rims to clear my 4-pots. 5mm is too thick and you don't have enough threads left for the lug nuts. Other than that, there is probably little to be concerned with.

what about getting longer bolts so that the lugs will have enough thread? overkill?

....and may cause all sorts of other issues.....and you are brainwashed into thinking that it will 'look better' by who???

What do you know about suspension dynamics???? How will it affect handling and component life????

Are you speaking from experience? You have done this yourself? What are some problems?

What is that supposed to mean? I have to run spacers so my autocross tires will clear the strut. I've had no ill effects. Matter of fact there are plenty of people that rally with spacers. As long as you have the proper thread length on the stud, there are no ill-effects. And actually, can help by increasing track width slightly. If I'm wrong, please correct me.
