I'm thinking of getting wheel spacers for the back axle. I'm looking at fender flares right now and not sure which spacers to get. Does anyone here have before and after photos? I know I could search the net for photos but I would love to hear input on how the car handles from someone who has done this them selves. Thank you.

First things first, do you have the premium painted wheels or the stock snowflakes?

The reason I ask is the snowflakes can take any size spacer... I think.

The premiums can only take the 25mm spacers. Anything smaller will not work unless you plan on cutting your studs.

One other thing to keep in mind is you will probably need mudflaps to protect your paint from whatever your wider stance throws at it.

Below is 2 threads I replied in with photos of my car with the 25mm spacers in front and back (I have the premium wheels). Please read through them. I am unsure if there are before and afters, but I definitely posted after photos in both. I hope this helps!

CJ pony parts has a video comparing the 20 and 25mm wheel spacers and compares them to stock at about 3:30 into the video. IMHO 20mm all the way around looks best with the snowflake wheel. the 25s look a little goofy in my opinion sticking so far out of the wheel well
